In a culture that encourages constant busyness, multitasking, and perpetually divided awareness, more than ever, the ability to bring to bear the full power of one’s attention is what distinguishes the mediocre from the excellent, the expert from the amateur. In this keynote interview, Dan Goleman will discuss how to apply the latest advances in the science of attention, mindfulness practice and high performance learning in clinical practice. You’ll learn how to:

  • cultivate the three kinds of focus—inner, other and outer—needed to thrive in a distracting world
  • teach clients focusing techniques that enable them to engage more fully in the therapeutic process
  • use Smart Practices and mental prosthetics to help clients improve habits, attain new skills, and reach their therapeutic goals
