    Please join us for a workshop on the Applications of Mindfulness to Addictions Treatment and Relapse Prevention. This half day workshop will introduce participants to the basics of mindfulness and how it can be applied to addictions treatment and relapse prevention, and provide 4 continuing education units (CEU’s).

    Participants will be guided through a selection of mindfulness practices to get first hand appreciation of how mindfulness can help to relax the mind/body and provide mental “spaciousness” that helps reduce the grip of cravings and distressing emotions. We will also overview several specific therapeutic approaches that integrate mindfulness as a key component of treatment. Online and printed resources will be provided for students’ further study and for use within their treatment settings.
