2-day Mindfulness Training for Health Professionals

New dates to be confirmed 
Training venue  in Headingley (near ring road) Please note: Participants must have attended Part 1 before attending Part 2.

Who this course is for:

This course is for counsellors, psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, and other health and mental health professionals who are interested in using mindfulness in their clinical work or simply in developing mindfulness practice in their lives. It is suitable for those who are complete novices to mindfulness as well as those who are already familiar with mindfulness practice and would like to establish it more firmly.

Training outcomes:

Gain personal experience of mindfulness and experiment with using it in a different way

Try mindfulness in daily life and reflect on the experience/outcomes

Think about yourself as a mindfulness practitioner and how you may use it in your work

Meet other practitioners interested in mindfulness and have an opportunity to discuss your clinical material and work in small groups

Possibly create a little supportive network of clinicians

What will be covered:

This training is based on the assumption that it is not possible to effectively use mindfulness in therapeutic work unless a practitioner has their own mindfulness practice.

The programme consists of two experiential and interactive sessions with home 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 of mindfulness.

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.
