Event Description

From elementary schools to psychotherapy offices, mindfulness meditation is an increasingly mainstream practice. At the same time, trauma remains a fact of life: the majority of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime, and some will develop posttraumatic stress. While this may appear to be a good thing — trauma is an extreme form of stress, and mindfulness is a proven stress-reduction tool — the reality creates a complex challenge.

Emerging research suggests that mindfulness interventions can help or hinder trauma survivors, raising a crucial question for mindfulness educators everywhere: How can you be prepared to minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits at the same time?

Designed for wellness professionals, this daylong workshop–led by author and trauma specialist, David Treleaven, PhD–will equip you with the tools you need to offer mindfulness in a safe, effective, trauma-sensitive way.
