Strategies for ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, and PTSD
Meditation works! Research clearly shows that meditation is beneficial for a range of mental health concerns and can significantly change the structure and function of the brain. In this workshop, you will learn the science behind meditation and understand that all meditations are not created equal. Different styles of meditation require different types of attention, intention and brain activation patterns. Based on this understanding we have identified 4 styles of meditation (Focus, Mindfulness, Open Heart, Quiet Mind) that can be matched with specific mental health concerns. In this workshop, we will explore these styles in depth with an emphasis on individualizing meditation interventions to fit the goals and needs of our clients.
Learn how and why certain meditative techniques are more effective than others at addressing symptoms of mood, anxiety, attention and “disorders of the self.” This seminar will go beyond traditional meditation practices to include mind-body strategies that intersect with other therapeutic approaches, such as biofeedback, mindfulness-in-motion, and nature-based strategies. You will leave with an expanded meditation-based toolbox to share with your clients or students, strategies to help you begin or sustain your own personal meditation practice and the ability to synthesize and prioritize these tools to enhance their effectiveness.
