Course Description:

Mindfulness works! Learn how to bring it into your personal and professional life NOW. Join Dr. Jeff Tarrant as he connects the dots between the actual practices of mindfulness and the direct impact on the brain and daily functioning. Through active exposure to targeted mindfulness-based tools, as well as live demonstrations, you will leave with practical methods that can be used to help manage anxiety, depression, ADHD, chronic pain, OCD and personality disorders.

Learn how and why certain mindfulness techniques are more effective than others at addressing symptoms of mood, anxiety, attention and “disorders of the self.” This seminar will go beyond traditional meditation practices to include mind-body strategies that intersect with other therapeutic approaches, such as biofeedback, mindfulness-in-motion, and nature-based strategies. You will leave with an expanded mindfulness-based toolbox to share with your clients or students, strategies to help you begin or sustain your own personal mindfulness practice and the ability to synthesize and prioritize these tools to enhance their effectiveness.
Objectives:
  1. Define key concepts related to meditation including mindfulness and MBSR.
  2. Explain how meditation changes the structure and function of the brain.
  3. Describe 5 different types of meditation.
  4. Distinguish which mindfulness practices might be ideal for certain mental health concerns.
  5. Apply mindfulness skills to movement-based interventions.
  6. List three ways that nature enhances health and well-being.
