Description

In Mindful Therapy, Lorne Ladner discusses his approach to incorporating mindfulness techniques into psychotherapy. The benefits of using mindfulness practices in therapy have been well documented: These techniques have been shown to be clinically effective in treating stress and anxiety and as part of treatment for personality disorders and depression. Side benefits include improvements in self-awareness and emotional regulation as well as enhanced empathy.

In this session, Dr. Ladner demonstrates the process of mindful therapy with an anxious teacher, ultimately helping her to feel hopeful about changing her life. Dr Ladner teaches mindfulness meditation to the client and also discusses and demonstrates how therapists can use mindfulness themselves.
