LUCIA MCBEE, LCSW, MPH, CYI

Lucia McBee, LCSW, MPH, CYI, began her Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction journey in 1992. Always interested in meditation and yoga, her mindfulness practice was inspired by a client with chronic pain. Looking for alternative treatments, she discovered MBSR, which requires a serious practice commitment from the teacher. She participated in professional training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in 1994 and the first MBSR Teacher Development Intensive at the Center for Mindfulness in 1997. She also completed training in Mind/Body/Spirit Medicine at the Center for Mind/Body Medicine in 2000. In 2008, Lucia became a certified Kripalu yoga teacher. Since 1998, she has taught MBSR to a wide variety of populations including mental health professionals, frail elders and caregivers, college students, persons with HIV, those recently released from incarceration, and courses for the general population.

In addition to teaching MBSR, Lucia is a licensed clinical social worker in both New York and Maine. Following her graduation from Columbia University’s School of Social Work and Public Health, she developed a pioneering practice using mindfulness and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to improve the quality of life in community, hospital and nursing home settings. Her book, Mindfulness-Based Elder Care, is based on her innovations in adapting mindfulness and complementary and alternative medicine for elders and their caregivers. She has published numerous articles in peer reviewed journals and chapters in many books describing her adaptations of mindfulness. Her presentations have included national and international conferences. She regularly presents to and consults with institutional and community direct-care providers.

She is currently a freelance author, consultant and faculty at Columbia University School of Social Work.
