Description

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Professional Practicum (Full Day)

This full-day, 6 week practicum for health care professionals will give participants the theoretical orientation and practical skills to incorporate mindfulness into their professional work. Examples include leading mindfulness practices for specialized populations and integrating mindfulness into therapeutic work.

9 am – 11:45 am:

MBSR Class: A course designed to transform your relationship to stress and increase your enjoyment of life. MBSR is not simply a course in learning how to meditate or how to practice mindfulness. Instead, this powerful curriculum leads you through a process of bringing mindfulness to the challenges of your own life.

1:15 pm – 4 pm:

MBSR Professional Practicum: Building off the morning class, participants will use their own MBSR experiences to come to a deeper understanding of professional applications of MBSR in the afternoon practicum.

Topics covered:

  • Theoretical underpinnings of MBSR and other mindfulness-based interventions

  • Cultivating helpful MBI teacher/therapist characteristics

  • Components of MBSR curriculum and skill to introduce individual practices

  • Practical teaching aspects

  • Solutions to common barriers/problems in introducing and teaching mindfulness interventions

  • Sensitivities and adaptations for special populations including those with complex trauma, pain and children/adolescents

  • Applications for special populations, with support for integrating these into your target populations

  • Discussion of evidence-based literature

  • Opportunity for "teach-backs" of mindfulness meditations with constructive feedback.

Tuesdays beginning September 5, 2017; 6 weeks
