The Power of Mindfulness: Inside & Outside The Therapy Hour
November 3-4, 2017 , Portland, OR
November 6-7, 2017, Seattle, WA
December 7-8, 2017, Baltimore, MD
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 Senses in Paradise
January 13-20, 2018, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
A nature-lovers 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.

This retreat will awaken your senses and enhance your awareness while surrounded by lush tropical jungle, wildlife, warm ocean waters, and pristine beaches. We’ll enjoy meditation, gentle mindful movement, clinical education, excursions into nature, and delicious cuisine, all within a beautiful eco-lodge in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, where sparkling ocean meets verdant jungle to provide a safe and nurturing container for our work and play.

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.  23 CEs are offered for most psychologists, social workers, nurses, and licensed mental health counselors; 7.5 for massage therapists.

Mindfulness, Compassion, and Psychotherapy:
An Educational Retreat in Cuba

February 4 - 8, 2018, Veradero, Cuba

A post-conference workshop of
IMAGINE: The 2018 Havana Therapy Summit (details below)

To incorporate mindfulness and compassion practices into our work and personal lives, we need an intellectual as well as an intuitive, visceral understanding of them. In this symposium, you will develop a solid theoretical understanding of mindfulness from both the Buddhist and western scientific perspectives. You will also receive instruction in mindfulness meditation and compassion practices and be given the opportunity for personal practice in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere at a Cuban beachside resort.

Through lecture, demonstration, experiential exercise, and small group discussion, we will examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform our understanding of the causes of psychological suffering across the diagnostic spectrum. You will learn when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to your clients or patients; how to utilize special techniques for treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders, and interpersonal conflicts; and how to creatively work with obstacles to mindfulness practice.

20 CE’s are offered to most mental health disciplines.
