Course Description:

Mindfulness can truly be a powerful tool when helping clients, however, far too often we use the same common mindfulness techniques for each situation. That approach short changes your client and won’t get you the best results. To truly unlock the power of mindfulness, you need to be able to adapt mindfulness techniques to each unique situation in a way that will lead to lasting results.

Attend this workshop and get detailed guidance on the how, why, and when of incorporating core and advanced mindfulness skills into your clinical practice.

You’ll walk away knowing how to apply brain-changing mindfulness skills specifically tailored to:
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • OD & Compulsive Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Pain
Sign-up today and get step-by-step instruction on specific interventions you need to treat a variety of disorders and populations!
Objectives:
  1. Improve client engagement in treatment with personalized practices associated with mindfulness practice.
  2. Effectively communicate the core principles of mindfulness-based approaches and how those skills can help clients observe internal reactions.
  3. Integrate well formulated treatment plans for anxiety that incorporate mindfulness techniques to improve outcomes.
  4. Understand and implement mindfulness-based principles with a trauma informed lens and articulate the benefits of use in the treatment of posttraumatic stress symptoms.
  5. Learn to guide clients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and other compulsive behavior disorders on the utilization of mindfulness skills that can facilitate change from stuck thinking patterns and compulsive behavior engagement.
  6. Integrate mindfulness interventions into therapy to help clients experiencing depressed mood to effectively respond to unhelpful thought patterns.
