Course Description:

Positive client outcomes are what we all strive for. Yet, over time, we can begin to feel stuck in a rut. The same treatments and methods we’ve become accustomed to using can start to show their limitations (and create burn-out).

A way to break through with your clients can be found within a well-researched method for teaching mindfulness called MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction). MBSR is clinically shown to have profound benefits on emotional and physical well-being as well as a wide range of chronic conditions. MBSR-informed adaptations are now used for the basis for many interventions, including treatment for depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, ADHD and pain.

Attend this 3-day certificate course and you’ll be immersed into an experiential workshop that will introduce and deepen mindfulness-based practices for clinicians and explore how these can be conveyed in a broad variety of populations and settings. You’ll be nourished as you learn transformational mindfulness techniques and gain an in-depth knowledge of the MBSR program and all its benefits. The slogan of an MBSR approach is “There’s more right with you than wrong.” Come and experience how this is true.

Sign up today and learn how to embody and apply mindfulness to your patient population simply but effectively. Be renewed while getting a whole new toolbox of techniques for treating trauma, anxiety, chronic pain, depression, addictions, ADHD and more!
Objectives:
  1. Present the core beliefs of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as they relate to clinical treatment.
  2. Ascertain the meaning of mindfulness and provide psychoeducation to clients regarding its use for reducing stress and improving mental health.
  3. Implement various mindfulness practices to decrease stress and improve symptomology in clients, including a body scan, sitting meditation, walking meditation and yoga practices.
  4. Articulate the essential core components of the MBSR program as they relate to clinical treatment.
  5. Identify techniques for increasing the effectiveness of meditation for improved outcomes.
  6. Teach clients how to integrate specific informal mindfulness interventions into their daily lives to alleviate symptoms and improve level of functioning.
  7. Utilize the breath and awareness exercises as an intervention to refocus attention and interrupt negative thoughts and ruminations.
  8. Interpret and differentially communicate mindfulness language appropriate for diverse populations.
  9. Evaluate appropriate applications of mindfulness practices for treatment in populations with trauma history, mental health disorders, and emotional and physical disabilities.
  10. Differentiate which mindfulness-based skills can be applied in a group therapy setting.
  11. Practice the process of inquiry and evaluate its ability to enhance client insight and reduce stress.
  12. Articulate the effectiveness of MBSR techniques in treating pain, stress, anxiety and panic in clients.
  13. Specify all 10 sessions of the MBSR program and the broad themes and client goals for each one.
  14. Characterize how to get a client to work through pleasant and unpleasant feelings to overcome barriers for treatment.
  15. Summarize the neuroscience research that shows the benefits of MBSR for clients.
  16. Specify how clinicians can identify situations in which MBSR-based techniques could be most beneficial.
  17. Establish how to effectively adapt MBSR to a group setting or individual setting to obtain the best clinical outcomes.
  18. Communicate how to adapt MBSR to children or adults specifically to maximize clinical effectiveness.
