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.
