Emerging from meditative and contemplative traditions, mindfulness is increasingly used in Western psychology and medicine to alleviate an array of conditions. Mindfulness practices can help across a wide spectrum of issues from relationships issues, health issues, workplace effectiveness and reducing anxiety and depression.
With the increased pace and often conflicting demands of practicing in the field of Mental Health we are subject to the effects of internal and external stress. Mounting evidence shows that mindfulness practice can reduce job burnout, anxiety, depression and stress, improve focus and empathy, and increase well-being for practitioner and patient alike. It can also provide an excellent conduit for self-care which has become a necessity and requirement for practicing in the field of Mental health, Social Work and Psychology.
This workshop will provide a conceptual framework for mindfulness, a variety of tools and techniques for mindfulness practice, along with ample time for guided mindfulness practices, dialogue and Q&A. Therapists, Psychologists and Case Managers alike are welcome, including those new to the field.
