Description

Mindfulness offers a set of simple, powerful tools that can help heal past traumas and break cycles of depression, anxiety, addiction, and emotional dysregulation. In this recording, you'll practice real world applications of mindfulness that can open new doors for your clients. Discover how to harness the power of neuroplasticity through mindfulness practices (including meditation and non-meditation skills), direct growth in mindfulness and self-regulation skills with children and adults of all ages, and guide efforts in moment-to-moment resilience and non-reactivity. In addition to discussing mindfulness applications for numerous diagnoses, we will explore effective mindfulness-based solutions for many common scenarios, including school failure, delinquency, poor ability to keep jobs, unstable relationships, and many more.
