Mindfulness skills can be a valuable client resource. However, mindfulness is HOT now, and there is a great deal of misinformation for counselors to sift through. This training addresses the information surplus and prepares counselors to use supported interventions. Participants will experience and implement five mindfulness interventions for counseling. Evidence from outcome research and interpersonal neurobiology will help identify the interventions and situations in which to use them. Skills reviewed include breath awareness, compassion practice, body scan, and mindful movement. There will be discussion regarding which interventions may (or may not) have support for depression, anxiety, empathy, trauma, emotional regulation, stress, and pain. Participants will gain an understanding of the term ‘mindfulness’ within its historical and present context. Confusion around the term will be identified and addressed. Mindfulness will be conceptualized from a cognitive-behavioral framework, and its use in CBT psychotherapies will be discussed. This is not a religious training, but the historical context will include diverse faith traditions.

This training is for counseling professionals, social workers, students, and individuals that have an interest in learning about HIV and the ethical dilemmas that arise in providing services. It is intended for individuals in both direct and administrative roles in a variety of practice settings, working with diverse groups of clients and consumers. This course will review legal and ethical issues and needs for future interventions for control of the HIV epidemic. A comprehensive overview of the historical, public health, clinical, and biological aspects of HIV infection will also be presented as well as the impact of HIV on community, other comorbid conditions (such as substance use), global health care, and prospects for prevention and control. This presentation considers the ethical dilemmas in terms of the Code of Ethics and the Five Principles that arise in providing services across fields of practice. Utilizing a framework for ethical decision making, the workshop explores clinical and systemic issues, as well as individual and institutional attitudes that impact society. Participants are welcome to ask questions and discuss examples that may lead to ethical dilemmas.

A free lunch will be provided by Bradford Health Services and Twelve Oaks Recovery Center.

Note: this is a 6-hour course, and attendees must attend all 6 hours to receive any credit (3 CEU Ethics + 3 CEU HIV).
