Clinicians are enthusiastically discovering that mindfulness practices can enlighten and enliven their lives, both inside and outside the therapy hour. These techniques hold great promise for personal development and as a powerful method to enhance virtually all forms of psychotherapy. But what does mindfulness-informed therapy actually look like? This demonstration, using volunteers from the audience, will illustrate how mindfulness practices and insights derived from them can inform treatment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the three essential skills developed by mindfulness practices.
  2. List some of the clinical decisions involved in mindfulness-oriented treatment.
  3. Describe what mindfulness-oriented treatment might look like in practice.
