Learn how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, stress-related medical disorders, and even interpersonal conflicts
Join world-renowned mindfulness expert, trainer and author, Dr. Ronald Siegel, and learn how to harness mindfulness in your clinical practice.
Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade—and for good reason. Mental health professionals are enthusiastically discovering that mindfulness practices hold great promise not only for their own personal development, but also as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy.
Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals—and this program will show you how. Once you understand the components of mindfulness practices and how they work to alleviate psychological distress, you will be able to creatively adapt them to meet the needs of diverse people and conditions. You will learn which practices are best suited to more vulnerable or fragile individuals, and which are most effective for people with greater internal resources.
In this seminar recording, you will learn how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, stress-related medical disorders, and even interpersonal conflicts. You will also see how understanding their neurobiological effects can enhance treatment. Through lecture, experiential exercises, case examples, scientific research, and Q & A, you will gain practical knowledge and skills that will take your practice of mindfulness based psychotherapy to the next level.
