Mindfulness : Professional and Personal Applications
A Three-Day Intensive Training Opportunity
Mindfulness has become recognised as a credible, mainstream, evidence based way of assisting people to realign their unhelpful thinking and behaviour. At the heart of the intervention is a focus on slowing down and becoming deliberate in your day to day actions and thoughts, thus bringing an increased awareness of the external environment and to the internal experience of the body and mind. It allows thoughts and feelings to be observed from a distance, without misinterpretation. Mindfulness helps people to step out of their conditioning and see issues such as anxiety, depression, substance use, eating disorders, self acceptance, and emotional trauma from a clearer perspective
Compass Seminars is pleased to announce that popular Australian psychologist and Mindfulness practitioner, Dr Angela Morgan will be returning to New Zealand in December 2017 to deliver a three day intensive mindfulness workshop. This training will provide attendees with an opportunity to develop, practice and refine the skills and techniques that are central to this popular approach. The training will be a blend of experiential, practical information & discussions and will provide the opportunity to deepen your own mindfulness practice personally and in your work with clients of all ages.
Some of the specific areas that Angela will cover include:
- the use of mindfulness to enhance your own therapeutic presence
- how mindfulness can create more opportunities to increase your therapeutic intuition, flexibility & creativity
- recent research into the neuroscience of mindfulness, & how using mindfulness can produce changes in your clients' (and your) brain
- structure, functioning & plasticity
- increasing your understanding of how different mindfulness exercises can be utilised with different clients, and for which problems
- and how to get the timing right.
- how to use mindfulness to establish safety when clients become overwhelmed and when not to use mindfulness at all
This intensive workshop will to build on participants existing understanding of mindfulness with the goal of taking it to the next level. Although attendance at an earlier introductory training course is not a prerequisite a basic level of understanding about the core principles of the approach is required by those planing to attend.
