Event description
Learn to improve your mediation practice by using mindfulness techniques

About this Event

Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.” The practice of paying attention has been shown to help people breathe and become more aware of where they are in the moment, physically and psychologically. It can cause an “increase in empathy, affective regulation, and behavioral flexibility,” which are all essential to the work of mediation.

Mindfulness can cause an increase in empathy, affective regulation, and behavioral flexibility, which are all essential to the work of mediators (Reina et al, 2015). This interactive workshop will cover the research and benefits of mindfulness, as well as teach mediators how mindfulness techniques can be used to prepare for a mediation, with your participants/clients during a mediation, and to close or end a session.

Participants will be introduced to multiple practices and have the opportunity to practice those individually and as a group.

Trainer: Shanza Isom, MSW, Assistant Professor, Director of Field Instruction, James Madison University
