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, addiction issues and day to day life stressors.

Participants in this introductory / intermediate level workshop will learn the basics of a therapeutic mindfulness approach; ways to evaluate stress, to recognize the effects of stress, and reactions to stress: and how to integrate a multi-dimensional mindful approach with clients to find an effective way of reducing and managing negative reactions to stress.
Self-assessment tools and mindful exercises will be used to expand participants' level of understanding and experiential awareness of techniques.

Participants participating in this program will be able to:

* Define the therapeutic term of mindfulness

* Name two key principles of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

* List the three components of stress response

* Identify one way of changing stressful thinking patterns

* Name three ways to integrate mindfulness in to daily practice

Free - on-line registration strongly encouraged due to limited availability.
