This online presentation is for therapists who would like to learn about or improve their use of mindfulness as a clinical skill.

Some areas that will be covered:

Why is mindfulness particularly appropriate to use as an intervention for addiction?

How can I introduce mindfulness to my clients?

What is the difference between mindfulness and meditation? Between mindfulness and grounding? Between mindfulness and numbing?

How can mindfulness help people with addiction learn to deal with everyday difficulties?

How can I respond to clients who struggle with mindfulness, or who say that mindfulness is just not for them?

What are some common mindfulness myths?

What mindfulness techniques are most effective for issues that can co-occur with addiction, such as chronic pain, powerful cravings, or low frustration tolerance?

How can I take my mindfulness practice (for myself and my clients) to the next level?

Learning Objectives:
