Part 1: Introduction to Mindfulness
In partnership with the University of California San Diego Center for Integrative Medicine and Department of Psychiatry
Presented by Steven Hickman, PsyD, Executive Director of the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness, and Jacquelyn Schwartz, MA LMFT
In this presentation we will discover how mindfulness can make you a more effective therapist. We will explore what it means to be mindful and how to cultivate mindfulness in the therapeutic relationship. We will learn through experiential exercises how mindfulness practice can increase awareness, promote integration, enhance functioning, and contribute to an overall sense of well-being. We’ll introduce practical applications to a range of psychotherapeutic situations. This presentation will further your understanding of the expanding body of scientific research in the area of mindfulness and its implications for creating positive outcomes in psychotherapy.

Integrate experiential exercises involving various awareness practices to settle and focus the mind.
Identify three ways in which mindfulness can manifest in psychotherapy.
