  • 0 NP0013 Is Mindfulness Enough? NP0013, Mindfulness, Session 4, Michael Yapko 02.06.2012 12:51
    I am still processing Michael's ideas. Some thoughts I have are how much what he is saying about suggestability is applicable to all forms of therapy. As therapists we are always making suggestions, reframing, etc. so to be more intentional and aware of how and for whom these suggestions will be most valuable or effective is important. I am excited to dig a little deeper into the hypnosis literature & social psychology literature to explore these issues further.
    I also believe that mindfulness not only involves visualizations & suggestions during visualizations, but also involves important teachings about how to attend to experiences that enhance & can be well integrated into the therapeutic process that goes beyond Michael's discussion of what mindfulness is all about. While I am a very spiritual person, I find Marsha Linehan's approach to mindfulness very helpful and often more acceptable to clients who are not interested in approach based in a spiritual language.

    A big thank you both to Jack Kornfield and to Rich for such a rich and wisdom filled discussion.
    A question I have regarding my own clinical practice is regarding the degree to which it is necessary or appropriate to encourage my clients to build their own meditation practices. While I do integrate mindfulness principles and exercises into the work I do with clients, I fear pushing my own agenda on clients by prescribing a meditation practice (unless of course they are really open to it or already have such a practice). How much to do feel it is necessary for clients to engage in a formal meditation practice to benefit from the wisdom of mindfulness? Marsha Linehan has provided one example of having distilled some fundamental principles of mindfulness to offer clients to address their everyday life situations. Do you think this kind of approach is enough for clients to really benefit?
    Thanks for your insights!

    This was my first webinar--I found the sound and video to be a little choppy and at the end, it just cut of mid-sentence. However, I found the content to be very helpful. I know that I am guilty at times of sitting back and letting the couple control too much of the session. It is great to be reminded of these basic building blocks that provide the backbone for the therapy. One thing I would like to hear a bit more on, is if in the couple one partner is not willing to make a commitment to the marriage or therapy what do you do at this point? Or they say they are committed but are obviously not invested. Heidi Roth, Bloomington, IN
