Mindfulness. You've heard of it and the research shows it's a highly effective strategy for reducing anxiety, improving focus, managing chronic pain, and even treating trauma symptoms. But will any practice do?
When using mindfulness for therapeutic factors, there are a variety of factors to consider. In this webinar participants will learn how mindfulness of the body and movement can support individuals who have experienced traumatic stress. Instruction will include: a review of factors that can increase or decrease a clients' sense of safety and empowerment; a brief explanation of relevant neuropsychology research, such as the difference between bottom up and top down approaches to treatment and the value of each; and experiential activities to showcase mindfulness practices that can help increase self-awareness, support emotion regulation and distress tolerance capacity, and motivate clients toward positive change.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
