Our Moment of Zen:

Mindfulness for Helping Professionals

  • 6 CEU's from the MN Board of Social Work, 9am to 3:30pm (30 minute lunch break)
  • Friday, December 8th, 2017                        

Where is your mind when you are working with clients? Are you avoiding emotional content? Relational connectivity opens during moments of silence, void of conceptual thinking. Through this opening, mental health interventions are optimally delivered when the practitioner is simultaneously alert and relaxed. Awareness of one’s thinking and willingness to connect fosters a practice of compassion. But, what are the ways to cultivate this compassion? This workshop will utilize components of interpersonal neurobiology, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and meditation as means to illuminate our fundamental tendency toward intimate interactions. At the core, this seminar will provide a space to access personal needs through periods of silence, dialogic communication and group process. Collectively, we will develop our moment of Zen by mindfully pausing, reflecting and breathing in awareness.

Learning Objectives: 

  • 1. Experiential mental training via seated and walking meditation as well as mindfulness application strategies for daily living.
  • 2. Apply interpersonal neurobiology (e.g., approach versus avoidance tactics) to understand mental health.
  • 3. Cultivate compassion for the clients you work with by evaluating operational patterns of thinking and through periods of silence as well as group discussion.
