Description

Mindfulness and 3rd Approaches Across Cognitive Behavioural Therapies

PRESENTER: Dr Sanjay Rao, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of Ottawa

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The third wave of cognitive behavioural therapies, involving mindfulness and compassion approaches have revolutionised the practice of therapy. Mindfulness is practised in religious, secular and clinical contexts. There are also pitfalls to using mindfulness in enhancing undesirable self-focussed attention. To be reflective and effective in these approaches’ practitioners need a sound philosophical, phenomenological and psychological background to understanding these practices.

This workshop will cover the theory and practice of mindfulness drawings from multiple traditions. Evidence for 3rd wave interventions across common mental health conditions and personality disorders will be reviewed. A clinical approach to different types of mindfulness and attentional control techniques will be presented. A strategy to work from a psychological formulation to choose a mindfulness stance and method will be emphasised. Examples of using mindfulness across mental health conditions will be provided.

The attendees will take away a comprehensive framework of philosophical, scientific and phenomenological understanding of mindfulness along with guidance for appropriate use in clinical conditions.
