Apr 24 - 26, 2019 | CME 14.00 | Springdale, Utah
Mindfulness and Reality Acceptance for Personal and Professional Practice is organized by Behavioral Tech (BTECH) and will be held from Apr 24 - 26, 2019 at Springdale Library and Canyon Community Center, Springdale, Utah, United States of America. Description: Mindfulness has emerged as an important focus of several empirically supported treatments. The roots of Mindfulness stem from the contemplative practices common to both Eastern and Western spiritual disciplines and the emerging scientific knowledge about the benefits of “allowing” experiences rather than suppressing or avoiding them. Both Eastern and Western psychologies, as well as spiritual practices, are converging on these same insights. The first two days of this training will be both didactic and experiential, consisting of practice and discussion of various mindfulness exercises and practices (both in and outside of the workshop). Day three will be devoted to extended mindfulness practice giving participants a full day of silent practice experience. The mindfulness skills illustrated in this workshop come from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT®), an empirically supported treatment for individuals with difficulties regulating emotions and impulsive behavior. Participants learn mindfulness skills to use in their own practice and with clients, as well as strategies for integrating these skills into clinical practice. This workshop is intended for people interested in developing a personal mindfulness practice or the use of mindfulness in psychotherapy, regardless of their specific approach to treatment.
