BT12 Super Course 03 Harnessing Mindfulness Tailoring the Practice to the Problem Ronald Siegel, PsyD
Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade—and for good reason. Mindfulness practices hold great promise both for our own personal development and as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy. Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. In this workshop you’ll learn how mindfulness practices work to alleviate psychological distress, and how to creatively tailor them to meet the needs of diverse people and conditions. We’ll examine how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve disorders such as anxiety, depression, and stress-related medical problems, while enriching and enlivening therapeutic work.
- Describe the three core elements of mindfulness practice.
- Identify common denominators in psychological difficulties.
- Use a 4 step process for rapidly repairing relationship ruptures.
- Describe the core attitude toward experience found in depression and how mindfulness practice can help to transform it.
- Indicate the mechanisms that maintain anxiety disorders and how these can be altered using mindfulness practice.
