The Psychotherapy and Spirituality Institute welcomes back teachers Craig Sloane and Dh. Ananta for our upcoming workshop- Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for Clinicians, beginning January 19, 2023.
This classic 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course is offered for mental health clinicians, as well as clergy, chaplains, and others. The workshop is an opportunity for participants to have a direct experience of the MBSR curriculum for personal practice, while also providing a foundation for those clinicians interested in incorporating techniques of mindfulness into their clinical practices/settings. This course meets the prerequisite for those who are interested in entering the pathway to become MBSR teachers themselves.
26 CECs are available to NYSED certified LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, LMHCs and LCATs.
ORIENTATION: January 19, 2-3:30 PM
The MBSR Orientation is free and required. It is intended both for those who would like more information about the MBSR class and for those who intend to register.
COURSE: Thursdays, 2pm-4:30pm, beginning January 26 (Jan. 26, Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23, and March 2, 9, 16)
