Cultivating Wisdom: Deepening Mindfulness in Clinical Practice - Details:
What do we look for in a psychotherapist? When we're in pain, the answer probably isn't academic knowledge or training. Rather, we hope that our therapist will be wise---will have a deep understanding of how to live life. This workshop will explore how wisdom manifests in therapy, including psychological insight, spiritual awakening, self-knowledge, cognitive flexibility, and compassionate action. We'll see how to use mindfulness practice to become wiser ourselves, and in the process, enhance our therapeutic relationships, prevent burnout, and deal skillfully with seemingly impossible situations.
