The Power of Mindfulness: Inside & Outside The Therapy Hour
January 29-30, 2015, Atlanta, GA
April 10-11, 2015, Seattle, WA
 April 13-14, 2015, Portland, OR 
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.

Mindfulness: An Educational Retreat In Ireland
May 18-22, 2015, Galway, Ireland

Sponsored by the New England Educational Institute

This symposium offers an opportunity for reflection and deepening psychological perspective through mindful travel. You'll have a chance to develop a solid theoretical understanding of mindfulness from both the Buddhist and western scientific perspectives. You'll also receive instruction in mindfulness meditation and have opportunities for personal practice while exploring the city and countryside of Galway, the unofficial cultural capital of Ireland.

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. Outside of the formal symposium hours, we'll have opportunites to explore Galway and environs together, reflecting on the history and culture of Ireland.

15 CE’s are offered to physicians, psychologists, counselors/educators, nurses, social workers, and marriage and family therapists.
