to effectively use mindfulness in therapeutic work unless a practitioner has their
own mindfulness practice.

in between. In the first session Dr Hortynska will help you in establishing or re-starting
your own mindfulness practice necessary to authentically use the principles and techniques
In the second session she will share with you examples from her own clinical practice
including real case material and offer some tips on how to introduce mindfulness
to clients and how to incorporate it into your clinical sessions.
Dr Hortynska will also share up-to-date research findings on the benefits of mindfulness
practice for clinicians and current guidelines and resources for further development.
