Calming the Brain through Mindfulness: Rewire
Emotions with the Power of Neuroplasticity
Mindfulness offers a set of simple, powerful
tools that can help heal past traumas and break cycles of depression, anxiety,
addiction, and emotional dysregulation. In this seminar, you'll practice real
world applications of mindfulness that can open new doors for your clients.
Discover how to harness the power of neuroplasticity through mindfulness
practices (included meditation and non-meditation skills), direct growth in
mindfulness and self-regulation skills with children and adults of all ages, and
guide efforts in moment-to-moment resilience and non-reactivity. In addition to
discussing mindfulness applications for numerous diagnoses, we will explore
effective mindfulness-based solutions for many common scenarios, including
school failure, delinquency, poor ability to keep jobs, unstable relationships,
and many more.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
• Identify how anxious children and adults have
impaired brain development leading to mental health deficits
• Summarize research on mindfulness practices, the relaxation response, and
• Describe mindfulness-based skills and their applications for therapy,
including meditation and non-meditation alternatives
• Demonstrate how practicing mindfulness can help clients with anxiety,
depression, addiction, or emotional regulation disorders
• Develop mindfulness-based solutions for real world problems, such school
failure, delinquency, poor ability to keep jobs, and unstable relationships
