From elementary schools to psychotherapy offices, mindfulness meditation is an increasingly mainstream practice. At the same time, trauma remains a fact of life: the majority of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime, and some will develop post-traumatic stress. While this may appear to be a good thing – trauma is an extreme form of stress, and mindfulness is a proven stress-reduction tool – the reality creates a complex challenge.
Emerging research suggests that mindfulness interventions can help or hinder trauma survivors, raising a crucial question for mindfulness educators everywhere: How can you be prepared to minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits at the same time?
Designed for wellness professionals, this one-day workshop – led by author and trauma specialist, David Treleaven, PhD – will equip you with the tools you need to offer mindfulness in a safe, effective, trauma-sensitive way.
Whether you’re a beginning or veteran practitioner, anyone engaged in offering contemplative practices will benefit from this workshop, including therapists, coaches, and meditation, classroom, yoga, or religious teachers.
Language: The seminar will be taught in English with consecutive translation into German.
