The Power of Mindfulness: Inside & Outside The Therapy Hour
March 15-16, Bloomington, Minnesota
April 12-13, Raleigh, North Carolina
Sponsored by the Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior

Day One: Mindfulness for Personal and Interpersonal Fulfillment is designed to help you to understand mindfulness practice theoretically and experientially and see how it can enrich and enliven your life both inside and outside of the therapy hour. We will explore how mindfulness practice can help us to deal with an ever-changing, uncertain world filled with complicated interpersonal relationships, and investigate the role of mindfulness in working with loneliness, alienation, illness and loss. You’ll gain insights from both scientific and Buddhist Psychology into paths and obstacles to greater well-being.

Day Two: Mindfulness-Based Clinical Interventions will focus on the integration of mindfulness practice into psychotherapy. First we'll examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform understanding of the causes of psychological suffering. We will then discuss when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to our clients or patients. Special techniques for treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders and childhood distress will be introduced.

Harnessing Mindfulness in Clinical Practice
February 9, 2012 Baltimore, MD and live webcast accessible anywhere
Sponsored by PESI

Mindfulness is not a one-size-fits-all remedy. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals—and this program will show you how. Once you understand the components of mindfulness practices and how they work to alleviate psychological distress, you’ll be able to creatively adapt them to meet the needs of diverse people and conditions. You’ll learn which practices are best suited to more vulnerable or fragile individuals, and which are most effective for people with greater internal resources.   In this day-long live seminar and webcast, you’ll learn how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, stress-related medical disorders, and even interpersonal conflicts. You’ll also see how understanding their neurobiological effects can enhance treatment. Through lecture, experiential exercises, case examples, scientific research, and Q & A, you’ll gain practical knowledge and skills that will take your practice of mindfulness based psychotherapy to the next level.

CEs are available.

Mindfulness: An Educational Retreat
June 25 - 29, 2012, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Sponsored by the New England Educational Institute

To incorporate mindfulness into our work and personal lives, we need an intellectual as well as an intuitive, visceral understanding of the practice. In this symposium, you will develop a solid theoretical understanding of mindfulness from both the Buddhist and western scientific perspectives. You will also receive instruction in mindfulness meditation and be given the opportunity for personal practice in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Through lecture, demonstration, experiential exercise, and small group discussion, we will examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform our understanding of the causes of psychological suffering across the diagnostic spectrum. You will learn when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to your clients or patients; how to utilize special techniques for treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders, and interpersonal conflicts; and how to creatively work with obstacles to mindfulness practice.

15 CE’s are offered to physicians, psychologists, counselors/educators, nurses, social workers, and marriage and family therapists.
