Using Grief and Sadness to Deepen Purpose and Well-being" 


Presenter: Jerome J. Front, LMFT 

There are so many types of losses in the human experience -- death, separation from family and friends, divorce, broken dreams and failing health, as well as those losses that are known only in the privacy of your heart. This workshop will focus on these often painful but powerfully transformative periods of life. Held in mindful awareness and acceptance, aspects of loss can yield gifts of growth and deep healing. Methods: By exploring personal grief you'll learn to identify and use the often hidden, positive aspects within grief, loss and sadness to deepen your emotional and spiritual development in daily life. Experiential exercises, guided meditations, metaphor and art-process will also be used. ** 



(4 CE Hours for LMFT, LPCC, LCSW, LEP & CA BBS Interns)




Presenter: Jerome J. Front, LMFT 

The use of Contemplative Processes, such as Mindfulness Meditation, Skillful Silence Revolutionizes the training of therapists.  This workshop weaves together nearly 30 years of meditative, clinical and innovative experiential activities that have helped thousands of therapists cultivate essential relational qualities.  


Essential clinical qualities include: personal presence, skill with silence, deep listening, tracking, attunement, empathy, self-other awareness, and much more!  Other topics include:  Living the healing relationship as "Deep Practice";   How therapy becomes a contemplative path for therapists and a way to practice moment-to-moment relational mindfulness.   Methods include periods of silent guided meditations to processing and discussion, sensory meditations and readings. 


Our work will also include reviewing some of the recent, exciting developments in neuroscience that both deepens our understanding about the mindful revolution and helps illuminate why meditative and contemplative practices have always worked.  In an era when mindfulness has become one of the major "trends" in psychotherapy, this seminar covers the relevant facets of mindfulness and the basics of what you need to know to provide the most effective and ethical clinical services involving mindfulness.  


This workshop will teach you the basics of having your meditative practice and will emphasize the value for therapists themselves to cultivate their own mindfulness meditation practice. Think on these:  Would you take music lessons from a teacher who hasn't played a musical instrument?  And, if you were teaching mindfulness clinically, would your own regular practice increase your understanding and skill?


If you like to learn by doing and are tired of hearing about mindfulness in crowded conference rooms, this workshop is for you!


CE Participants will be able to:

-  Describe the basics to begin or deepen their own regular mindfulness practice as Training.

-  Identify the application for Experiential Practice of several mindfulness meditations, including some components of the University of Massachusetts Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)

- List and Integrate Mindfulness-based Interventions that cultivates relational / communication qualities such as listening, empathy, presence, and attunement that can be applied to diverse populations and relationships.

-Identify at least three facets of mindfulness that are foundational for mindfulness-related interventions.

-Describe how having their own regular mindfulness practice provides the basis for both an Ethical and Competent use of mindfulness-related interventions.
