Description
Interest in mindfulness and compassion-based interventions has grown significantly in the past decade. Recent research suggests these evidence-based practices can improve mental health symptoms, and biomarkers related to stress and can even lead to structural and functional changes in the brain. Many of these interventions, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), require a multiyear development trajectory to meet minimum levels of competence. This intermediate workshop teaches the foundational skills of mindfulness facilitation in an interactive, skill-building format to prepare psychologists to teach an introductory mindfulness-based program.
Learning Objectives
1. Summarize mindfulness theory and interventions.
2. Describe the differences between mindfulness and compassion-based interventions.
3. Describe competencies for mindfulness facilitation.
4. Explain common pitfalls for psychotherapists leading mindfulness groups.
5. Demonstrate the specific skills needed for leading practices, including inclusive language, correct use of cueing, leading from a place of authenticity, and establishing spaciousness.
6. Demonstrate three practices including grounding meditation, mindfulness of breathing, and the self-compassion break.
7. Plan an introductory mindfulness class.
