Event description


Mindfulness and Stress Reduction

Mindfulness is the philosophy and practice of being focused and in the moment. It is sometimes defined as "The Art of Being Fully Present". When using mindfulness as a therapeutic tool, clinicians are able to help their clients tame distracting and distorting thoughts, and focus in on the immediacy of the moment. Mindfulness therapy has been validated in medical and psychological studies to bring a positive effect on reducing stress and enhancing coping skills when dealing with medical illnesses, pain management, addiction issues, and day to day life stressors.

Participants in this introductory / intermediate level workshop will:

* Learn the basics of a therapeutic mindfulness approach

* Understand how to evaluate stress, recognize the effects of stress

and physical / emotional reactions to stress

* Practive how to integrate a multi-dimensional mindful approach

with clients to find an effective way of reducing and managing

negative reactions to stressful situations.

Self-assessment tools and mindful exercises will be used to expand participants' level of understanding and experiential awareness of techniques.
