Objectives
  1. Analyze how clear psychoeducational descriptions of the relationship between mindfulness, neurobiology, and common disorders can be used to motivate clients to engage in treatment.
  2. Appraise how a case conceptualization that draws upon neuropsychological principles can help clinicians establish realistic expectations and goals with clients.
  3. Formulate treatment plans for anxiety that incorporate mindfulness strategies clients can use in and out of session to help alleviate symptoms.
  4. Assess the neurobiological underpinnings of how emotions are created, and communicate why this is important to the therapeutic process.
  5. Employ mindfulness training and diaphragmatic breathing techniques that clients can use to help them manage unhealthy anger responses.
  6. Construct treatment plans for depression that incorporate mindfulness interventions that can be used to interrupt rumination and automatic negative thoughts.
  7. Demostrate how mindfulness based stress reduction techniques can be used with clients to address prolonged periods of stress that can impact mental and physical health.
  8. Assess the clinical impact of research regarding the effects of mindfulness based practices on the neuropsychological aspects of trauma.
  9. Evaluate the clinical implications of research regarding the association between mindfulness and relationship satisfaction and outcomes.
  10. Investigate how barriers to implementing mindfulness can be overcome using informal techniques clients can incorporate into their daily lives.
  11. Determine how clinical tools that increase self-awareness can be used in therapy to help clients better manage their thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
  12. Appraise the importance of the connection between therapist and client in contributing to positive clinical outcomes, and evaluate how mindfulness may enhance the therapeutic relationship.
