Clinical Applications of Mindfulness and Compassion
Sep 19 – Sep 20 all-day

It’s now well known that mindfulness and compassion practices can enhance virtually any form of psychotherapy and have been proven effective in treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other disorders. These practices also have an even greater potential—they can challenge our conventional view of ourselves and the world, waking us up from limiting beliefs about who we are and how we can find happiness.

But mindfulness and compassion practices are not one-size-fits-all remedies. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity techniques. To be safe and effective, practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of individual clients—and this workshop will show you how. Whatever your treatment orientation—from ACT, CBT, or DBT to psychodynamic, interpersonal, or humanistic approaches—these evidence-based mindfulness and compassion tools can enhance your work with clients, making all aspects of your practice more effective.

Using Buddhist psychology and the latest brain and evolutionary science, Dr. Ron Siegel will cover the universal elements that underlie most psychological disorders, and how mindfulness and compassion can transform the lives of every client you treat.

Shame is perhaps the most painful of all emotions. It is at the root of both the inner critic and perfectionism. It binds with and hides behind other emotions, such as anger and fear, so that it is often hard to detect. Many people go to great lengths to avoid acknowledging or even feeling shame—and this gets in the way of making progress in treatment.

In this workshop, designed for therapists and other helping professionals, you will become aware of shame as both a primary emotion and a freeze state, which has a profound effect on personal development and relationship success, and which has been terribly neglected in most psychotherapy. You will learn that shame cannot be worked with in the same way as the other primary emotions and that special care needs to be taken to work with shame in specific ways.

“ I loved the online course. Zoom made it as close to reality as technologically possible. The class size was perfect, enough people for stimulating questions and conversation and small enough to feel intimate. The charts you provided will be so useful. Sheila and Bret, you and your assistants are providing a greatly needed service. Thank you so much! I’ve learned a lot from you and look forward to attending another workshop. Until then, I’m already benefiting watching the recordings, gleaning even more the second time around.”
Charlette Mikulka, LCSW, author of “Peace in the Heart and Home”

“I’ve been thinking lots about today’s workshop and how incredible it is that the 2 of you manage to seamlessly create a sense of connection and community among a group of people from all over the world. I was also struck by how compelling the content was and how as I mentioned earlier I learn more every time I participate in one of your sessions. I feel that this session in particular deepened my understanding of how to pendulate the work w/ shame and broadened my repertoire of possible ways to invoke protectors. Bret, the demo was beautiful and so moving. What a visceral impact it had! So, big thanks for today! “
