Mindfulness: Skills for Clinicians and how to Teach Clients
Description Mindfulness is a mind-body practice that works both for clients and therapists/care providers. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated scientifically and by the testimonies of people who we have experienced it as a result of regular practice. Mindfulness has found its way into a range of psychological therapies and interventions for a number of mental health and emotional difficulties, such as chronic depression, anxiety, addictions, stress, anger and borderline personality disorder. It is a practice that cultivates present moment, non-judgmental and accepting attention, as well as the the capacity to sustain that attention. The aim of this introductory workshop is twofold: 1) to provide you with both theoretical and experiential introduction to mindfulness and 2) to teach you how to present mindfulness skills to your individual clients and how to lead them through some experiential exercises.
