Includes a Live Event on 02/17/2021 at 11:00 AM (MST)

Mindfulness is defined as bringing one's attention to the present experience, moment-to-moment, with compassion. It entails the practice of observing thoughts, feelings and sensations as an ongoing flow of experiences to be had, versus something to be acted upon. The use of mindfulness in the therapeutic setting helps the client to establish a baseline when they become flooded with emotions, and provide them the opportunity to experience both negative and positive evaluated internal events without treating these events as true or presently happening. In this webinar, you will learn how mindfulness and meditative practices support changes in the mind and behavior, how to incorporate these practices into each session, and recommendations for homework for client's to practice between sessions.
