CE Workshop Description:

Mindfulness & Relationality 

Clinical Training: 

Didactic and Experiential Day of Firsthand Learning


This course emphasizes learning and experiencing the internal and external relational and systems aspects of mindfulness, as well as how mindfulness meditation techniques / mindful attention is a foundation for applying Mindfulness Clinically. 


CE Topics include: How 3 specific facets of relational mindfulness can be used to identify various clinically relevant mind states, e.g., Thinking Vs Ruminating, as well as for formulating interventions for a new relationship to both stress and anxiety; How these internal relational skills produce emotion-regulation internally, and interpersonally. How relational mindfulness is crucial to acquiring attuned listening and speaking – qualities that are essential in clinical work. 

Relational / contemplative mindfulness 

will help participants formulate down-regulating mindfulness practices using nature, awe, and spirit.

The workshop will alternate between lecture, immersive /experiential mindful practice which facilitates embodied, active learning, as well as periods of intentional silence and discussion of relational applications for clinical mindfulness. This active learning, and regular mindfulness practice, is recommended by mindfulness experts as essential to ensure an authentic, professional, ethical, and clinically competent use of mindfulness. CE Clinical Objectives Described Below.
