In-Person Training Killarney
Saturday, 11 June and 02 July 2022
As more and more therapists and mental health professionals learn about interpersonal neurobiology and contemplative practices, there is an increasing desire to translate theoretical and philosophical principles into practical applications for use with clients. Yet therapists struggle to incorporate mindfulness interventions into their practice.
Mind is a 2-day training that will enhance your practice as a mental health professional with the latest findings from neurobiology, contemplative science and evidence-based psychotherapy.
A broad range of psychological and interpersonal issues will be addressed, including attachment, emotion, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, challenging presentations, resilience, and interventions that offer a uniquely holistic, compassionate and integrative approach to mental health and wellbeing.
