Tailoring Mindfulness: Fitting the Practice to the Person
November 9, 2017, Denver, Colorado
Day-Long Workshop Sponsored by FACES Conferences

Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade—and for good reason. Mindfulness practices hold great promise not only for our own personal development, but also as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy. Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity practices. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals—and this workshop will show you how.

We'll explore seven clinical decisions that can help us choose practices for trauma survivors, fragile individuals, and others for whom meditation can be difficult or dangerous. You'll also learn how to tailor practices to diverse populations and people suffering from specific disorders such as anxiety and stress-related medical conditions.

(This workshop will be followed by an excellent 2-Day training in Mindful Self Compassion with my friends Kristen Neff & Chris Germer).

6 CE’s are offered to most mental heatlh professionals.

The Power of Mindfulness: Inside & Outside The Therapy Hour
March 7-8, 2018, Philadelphia, PA
Sponsored by the Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior

Day One: Mindfulness for Personal and Interpersonal Fulfillment is designed to help you to understand mindfulness practice theoretically and experientially and see how it can enrich and enliven your life both inside and outside of the therapy hour. We will explore how mindfulness practice can help us to deal with an ever-changing, uncertain world filled with complicated interpersonal relationships, and investigate the role of mindfulness in working with loneliness, alienation, illness and loss. You’ll gain insights from both scientific and Buddhist Psychology into paths and obstacles to greater well-being.

Day Two: Mindfulness-Based Clinical Interventions will focus on the integration of mindfulness practice into psychotherapy. First we'll examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform understanding of the causes of psychological suffering. We will then discuss when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to our clients or patients. Special techniques for treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders and childhood distress will be introduced.

12 CE’s are offered to psychologists, social workers, nurses, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed mental health counselors.

The Nature of Mindfulness:
Awakening the Heart of Peace and Healing

October 7-13, 2018, Assisi, Italy
A nature, culture, and history retreat

With Ronald Siegel, PsyD, Larry Cammarata, PhD, & Linda Cammarata, RN

From the Buddha’s earliest teaching to the wanderings of Zen masters, meditators have appreciated the power of nature to cultivate mindfulness and the understanding of interdependence. And being emersed in other cultures, especially those that are slower, more sensually attuned, with histories of deep spiritual practice, can heighten our awareness.

Our retreat is located at Castello Petrata, a castle perched high upon a peaceful plateau in the countryside outside of Assisi, the birthplace of Saint Francis. We’ll enjoy meditation, gentle mindful movement, and clinical education. There will also be opportunities to visit ancient villages, hike in beautiful forests, explore Assisi, enjoy delicious local cuisine, and get to know local people.

This will be an intimate trip with ample opportunities to reflect on our experiences together as well as to explore their clinical implications.

Enrollment is limited. CEs are offered for most psychologists, social workers, nurses, and licensed mental health counselors.
