Mindfulness in Action 2

Format Study Group Network
Presenters Dr Craig Hassed
Description The use of mindfulness meditation and related therapies have been strongly promoted in the last few years particularly in relation to mental health matters like depression, anxiety and stress. To date there has been limited opportunity for open discussion and sharing of knowledge in relation to theory, practice or outcomes.

This group will:

 Debrief participant's experience of implementing mindfulness-based strategies in practice explored in the Mindfulness in Action 1 workshop

 Further explore the consulting style best suited for mindfulness interventions

 Discuss further cognitive strategies related to mindfulness which were not explored in workshop 1

 Provide practical role plays for participants to deepen their skills in teaching mindfulness meditation and cognitive strategies and put the theory into action

 Explore variations of mindfulness-based practices including open awareness, reflection practices and walking meditation

Clinical experience is assumed, but specific experience in mindfulness techniques is not mandatory.
