Do you have a specific presenter or workshop in mind? We’d be happy to do the leg work to bring behavioral health education and awareness to your community! Depending on the activity and required resources, we can help coordinate behavioral health trainings, workshops, and webinars for your audience.
Using Mindfulness in Therapy to Enhance Well-Being and Quality of Life, presented by Susan Orsillo, Ph.D.
1 hr Webinar hosted by Jannus Inc.
Tuesday, January 9, 2018
In addition to decreasing anxiety and reducing the reoccurrence of depression, mindfulness practice has been shown to enhance creativity, boost attention span and focus, deepen relationships, and increase our capacity for joy, hope and optimism. In this webinar, you will learn how counselors use mindfulness to become more present with, and connected to, their clients, as well as how they integrate mindfulness practice into their existing approach to counseling. Participants will be introduced to a wide range of practices that can be used to help clients cultivate this stance and bring the skills of mindfulness to their every day activities.
