Neuroscience of mindfulness and clinical applications of mindfulness

Neuroscience research is providing new insight into how psychotherapeutic techniques may change the brain in healthy ways. Specifically, over the past couple of decades there has been an explosion of research on the neuroscience of mindfulness, including how mindfulness practices may help clients better manage and reduce symptoms associated with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. The goals of this seminar are to share this research with attendees, discuss how to apply this research to psychotherapy, and learn ways to practice mindfulness effectively and efficiently.

This two-day, experiential seminar presents attendees with the most up-to-date neuroscience findings on mindfulness practice, including which techniques have been shown to change specific areas of the brain for better mental health. Brain-changing mindfulness exercises that can help depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction symptoms will be discussed. Additionally, most of these techniques will be practiced during the seminar, and attendees will be provided with detailed instructions and scripts for all techniques taught, so that they may begin to incorporate these techniques into their practice immediately.


Why you should attend:

Mindfulness practices, such as meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, or body-based exercises, are extremely versatile and have been shown to be helpful adjuncts to evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions for a wide variety of mental health conditions. Thus, many mental health professionals want to incorporate mindfulness practice into psychotherapy. However, it is not uncommon for clinicians feel uncertain about when, how, and with whom to use these techniques. Furthermore, it can be unclear which mindfulness methods are likely to be beneficial, depending on a client's symptoms and presentation. Taking a "one size fits all" approach to mindfulness practice can lead treatment noncompliance, inefficiency, and ineffectiveness, but quality training on how to apply mindfulness in clinical practice can be difficult to find. Attend this experiential seminar to learn the neuroscience of mindfulness and discover which mindfulness techniques to use, at what time, and with whom, and start helping mindfulness practice work better for your clients!
