Description

Learn how to bring mindfulness into therapy! Watch Dr. Jeff Tarrant as he connects the dots between the actual practices of mindfulness and their impact on the brain and daily functioning. Through active exposure to targeted mindfulness-based tools, as well as live demonstrations, you will leave with practical methods that can be integrated into your treatment plans for anxiety, depression, ADHD, chronic pain, OCD, and Personality Disorders.

This recording will include strategies that intersect with other therapeutic approaches, as well as a discussion of the clinical implications of research on biofeedback, mindfulness-in-motion, and nature-based strategies. Learn how and why certain mindfulness techniques are more effective than others for addressing symptoms of mood, anxiety, and attention. You will discover an expanded mindfulness-based toolbox to share with your clients, and the knowledge needed to prioritize and incorporate these tools into your existing practice.
