•Explore how to enhance therapy by taking advantage the brain’s innate experiential and relational learning styles.
•Learn about one-minute mindfulness techniques that help clients get profoundly in touch with their body and emotions.
•Help clients increase awareness of their thoughts and gain mastery over attention.
•Learn how to access client strengths through the power of story.
•Discover powerful tools to overcome pervasive life and workplace stressors that produce anxiety and depression.

One-Minute Mindfulness and Interpersonal Neurobiology blends two exciting and emerging fields for effectively managing moods, overcoming stress, and enhancing daily life experience. This experiential and skills-oriented program—based on Donald Altman’s popular book, One-Minute Mindfulness: 50 Simple Ways to Find Peace, Clarity, and New Possibilities in a Stressed Out World—draws upon a number of unique and profound, yet easy to grasp, mindfulness practices that rewire the brain.

With the practical tools provided in this workshop, you will help clients change their fundamental relationship to depression and anxiety. The emphasis will be on expanding thinking to explore more nurturing options and possibilities that are available in life. Discover step-by-step practices of acceptance that replace rumination and negative filters with a spacious present moment awareness—skills that help anyone become more adept at living in the “what is” instead of the “what if.”
