Mindfulness is a deceptively simple way of relating to experience that has been successfully practiced for over 2500 years to alleviate human suffering and to increase awareness. Recently clinicians are discovering that mindfulness holds great promise as an add-on to couples therapy and education leading to greater kindness, love and acceptance. This program will discuss, demonstrate and offer experiential activities on how mindfulness can facilitate brief changes when working with couples.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate three basic mindfulness meditation exercises.
  2. Identify the shortcomings of mindfulness in couple therapy.
  3. List three reasons couples can benefit from the practice of mindfulness.
