Description

From depression and anxiety to stress and trauma, mindfulness has demonstrated its ability to help reduce suffering. With all its benefits, mindfulness is now widely used in clinical practice. There are literally hundreds of mindfulness interventions available to clinicians. But with so many to choose from, how do you know which to use? How do you decide on your “go-to” techniques?

Terry Fralich has studied extensively with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and with some of the American pioneers in the mindfulness field. With more than 20 years teaching mindfulness and using mindfulness techniques in his clinical practice, Terry has distilled the sea of available techniques into the essential hands-on mindfulness skills and exercises you need to treat your clients.

Watch Terry, and learn to effectively use 15 mindfulness practices you can incorporate into your treatment plans for depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma. Terry will guide you through the specific exercises that he’s found most capable in shifting clients away from stress responses, intervening in the downward spiral of depression and anxiety, and cultivating safety and groundedness in traumatized clients. In addition, he’ll give you detailed instruction on his top mindfulness interventions to help your clients properly deal with guilt and shame and empower them to manage their anger and toxic emotions.

As an additional benefit, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the application of what you’ve learned.

Enhance your clinical practice with mindfulness skills that work!
