Mindfulness and Psychotherapy
0.5 Credit

Mindfulness and Psychotherapy explores the "third wave" of behavioural therapy models that all apply mindfulness practice as a common intervention. These models include Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Using an experiential and interactive approach, this course aims to increase understanding and theoretical application of these models as applied to psychotherapy practice with individuals, families and groups. The strengths and shortcomings of the models are examined as will caveats for new practitioners.
