In this in-depth, two-day workshop, national mindfulness teacher and author Donald Altman will demonstrate a variety of powerful clinical tools-from grounding and attention-focusing skills to metacognitive awareness and mindfulness skills-for helping clients to rewire the brain as they overcome clinical anxiety, depression, chronic pain, PTSD, addictive cravings, and stress-related symptoms. It’s no secret that over 40 million Americans suffer from an anxiety disorder, 25 million from clinical depression, and more 100 million from chronic pain that shatters their lives and relationships. This highly experiential workshop utilizes practical and evidence-based mindfulness tools that radically alter clients’ habitual and conditioned reactions to these and other forms of suffering.
Drawing upon brain science and concepts from Interpersonal Neurobiology, this workshop will make brain science easy to understand for your clients. You’ll be able to clearly demonstrate for clients how they can regulate emotions and rewire their brains through practices such as focused attention, selective memory, and strengths-based storytelling. In addition, you will learn how to adapt these many tools for different populations in order to create a clear roadmap to wellness for clients. In all, this two-day training will have you returning to your practice with a comprehensive menu of transformative mindfulness tools to draw from-and that clients can use to regulate emotions and find calm.
Donald is known for creating compelling experiential and participatory trainings. Whether you are experienced in mindfulness or are new to these techniques, this special two day workshop is certain to get you enthused and excited about experiencing and using mindfulness for joy, calm, and healing in your own life, as well as in your therapy practice. You won’t want to miss out on this unique mindfulness training opportunity.
