Tailoring the Practice to the Person: Deepening Mindfulness in Clinical Practice

Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars, Inc

Thursday, June 13, and Friday, June 14, 2013, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm • YWCA Elm Centre, 87 Elm Street, Toronto

Mindfulness-based psychotherapy has been the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade — and for good reason. Apart from enhancing therapeutic presence and personal development, mindfulness is a powerful tool that can augment virtually every form of psychotherapy.

Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. In this workshop, Dr. Siegel, one of the earliest proponents of the use of mindfulness in psychotherapy, draws on his extensive clinical experience and exposure to a broad client population to tailor mindfulness to fit the individual.

Through lecture, demonstrations, participatory exercises, and small group discussion, you will learn how to address the therapeutic choice points that arise when implementing mindfulness in treating clients, and explore when and how to introduce various exercises to different individuals.

Special techniques for treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders, and childhood distress will be presented, along with contraindications and creative ways to deal with the obstacles and challenges that arise when working with particular disorders and personalities.

You will also learn a variety of formal and informal mindfulness techniques, and gain insights from both Western psychology and Buddhism into how to use these techniques as paths to greater well-being for both you and your clients.

You will learn —

How to practise mindfulness yourself, both inside and outside of the clinical hour
The three core components of mindfulness practices and how to adapt them to the needs of individual clients
About seven clinical choices therapists should consider in tailoring mindfulness practices to the needs of particular individuals
Ways to adapt mindfulness practices to meet the needs of special populations, such as children and trauma survivors
About the core attitude toward experience found in depression and how mindfulness practice can help to transform it
About the key mechanisms that maintain anxiety, chronic pain, and related psychophysiological disorders, and how mindfulness practice can help alleviate these conditions
How to use mindfulness practices to enhance therapeutic and other intimate relationships
How Buddhist insights into the nature of the self and causes of suffering can enrich and enliven psychotherapy
