Mindful Practices for a Healthy Brain (3 CE Hours)
Fri, June 16, 2017, 8:30 AM – 11:45 AM EDT
Many clients seek mental health treatment for the relief of the emotional distress brought on by life’s challenges. The symptoms experienced are as varied and unique as the individual. The common factor for each client, however, is the brain. The brain is a complex organ that is involved in every aspect of living. Exciting research over the past two decades, suggests that increasing the brain awareness of mental health practitioners is becoming an important foundation for producing and supporting positive changes for clients. In this three-hour workshop, participants will explore ways to position the mind, body and soul for client mental wellness.
