NP0013, Mindfulness, Bonus Session 2, Ron Siegel & Michael Yapko

 

This lively Bonus Session, a dialogue between Ron Siegel, an assistant clinical professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, and noted hypotherapist Michael Yapko, will offer contrasting perspectives on the impact of mindfulness practices on therapy today. Siegel will explore the ways in which Eastern mindfulness practices are being integrated into Western psychotherapy, and how this union is affecting both. Yapko will discuss how understanding the role of suggestion can enhance mindfulness as a clinical tool.

After this presentation, please take a few minutes to reflect on what was striking to you about this particular session, how it fits in with the series in its entirety, and what you’re thinking after participating in this course and hearing such a wide variety of perspectives on a variety of applicable topics. What do you think—is mindfulness enough? What do you think was most interesting or made the most sense to your practice? What questions remain for you? Do you have any relevant experiences to share?

We encourage you to comment on this session and about the series as a whole, as this kind of deeper engagement is key to learning and understanding. Thank you for your participation, and we hope you come away from this course with a clearer vision of how we can effectively integrate mindfulness practices and psychotherapy to benefit ourselves and our clients.

Welcome to the New Perspectives on Practice series, “Is Mindfulness Enough?” This series will explore the benefits and limitations of both psychotherapy and mindfulness as well as the integration of these two wisdom traditions. In the first session with leading Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield, he’ll discuss the erroneous belief that prayer and meditation is all that’s needed for personal transformation, talk about how to combine meditation with our daily activities, and describe how to bring the sacred into the practice of therapy.

Throughout the series, a Comment Board after each session will be available. The Comment Boards are a way for course participants to share thoughts and reflections about what was most interesting after each session and to ask questions of the presenters and of each other. We invite and encourage you to use these Comment Boards as a forum for thought and to continue the conversation sparked by each session.
