Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

This evidence-based course is an integration of the best of Western scientific research from peak performance and positive psychology with the great contemplative traditions of the East. The course addresses a gap in the Western psychotherapy traditions which emphasize the eradication of negative emotional states by instead focusing on the implications of various positive emotional states for psychological and physical health. Emphasis is given to understand the neuro circuitry peak performance, sustain concentration, training positivity and pro-social behavior. This course provides an up-to-date review of the theory and practice of concentration from its ancient origins to modern brain science to how it works to alleviate psychological and physical distress as well as providing opportunities for attendees to cultivate their own personal meditation practices. The concentration aspects of this course holds great promise not only for clinicians’ own personal development, but also is a remarkably powerful tool to augment virtually every form of psychotherapeutic and medical treatments. Through lecture, demonstration, Q&A and experiential exercises, you’ll learn how to use mind training practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, stress related medical disorders, and interpersonal conflicts in both adults and children. Participants with no meditation experience,as well as seasoned practitioners, will find this course helpful both personally and clinically.
