The growing interest in meditation, mindfulness, and neuroscience reflect a new paradigm of clinical training and treatment. Therapists are increasingly aware that the complex nature of their "work" is better served by balancing out lecture-based professional training with wisdom-based practices. This course will explore how mindfulness meditation can help therapists cultivate essential clinical and relational skills. The course is designed for both those new to mindfulness and for experienced meditators seeking to embody beginner's mind and refresh their practice with some new perspectives.
Instructor: Jerome Front, M.A., L.M.F.T., has conducted mindfulness retreats for more than 12 years and is adjunct faculty at the Graduate School of Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University.
