Synopsis

Mindfulness and compassion practices have been shown to enhance virtually any form of psychotherapy, with proven efficacy in treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain and other disorders. But these practices are not one-size-fits-all remedies. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how. Whatever your treatment orientation—from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), to psychodynamic, interpersonal or humanistic approaches—these evidence-based mindfulness and compassion tools can enhance your work with clients, making all aspects of your practice more effective.

Using the latest psychological, neurobiological and evolutionary science, Ron Siegel will cover the universal elements that underlie most psychological disorders, as well as how mindfulness and compassion can transform the lives of every client you treat. Rather than a purely experiential mindfulness retreat, this workshop will focus on the mechanisms of change that mindfulness can sprout in your clients. Over two days, you will learn to create tailored interventions to help clients more effectively move toward these changes using mindfulness and compassion.

Day One

On day one, you’ll learn mindfulness and compassion practices both theoretically and experientially. Through lecture, therapeutic demonstrations, participatory exercises and small group discussion, you will learn a suite of mindfulness and compassion techniques along with guidelines as to how and when (as well as when not) to use them. We will explore how mindfulness and compassion techniques can help us deal with the personal and professional challenges of living in an ever-changing, uncertain world, enabling clients - and ourselves - to transform hardwired concerns regarding self-esteem and competence into experiences of meaning and connection.

Day Two

On day two, the focus will be on integrating mindfulness and compassion practices into psychotherapy. You’ll learn how these techniques can enhance therapeutic presence and transform your understanding of the causes of psychological suffering. You’ll learn special techniques for treating depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem issues, addiction and the legacies of problematic attachment histories. Throughout the workshop, you’ll examine creative ways to deal with the obstacles and challenges that arise when working with various disorders and personalities. Upon completion, you will have a foundation for integrating these transformative practices into both your personal life and your therapeutic work.
