Using Mindfulness in Clinical Practice
This one hour webinar on Using Mindfulness in Clinical Practice is part of the Lamberts Healthcare Masterclass Series, designed for health practitioners. The live event in July 2021 was followed by 30 minutes of Q&A, which is not available on the recording in order to protect the anonymity of those attending. If you would like to join future events, please do not hesitate to register with Lamberts Healthcare on their website.
Mindfulness in Clinical Practice
As the evidence base for mindfulness continues to increase, are there simple mindfulness practices that we can safely incorporate into lifestyle protocols for our clients? How do we know which ones to choose, when our clients present with such a wide range of health conditions?
The classic image of a seated meditation is only one aspect of mindfulness, and this webinar is designed to give you a toolkit of ideas that you can confidently weave into your clinical practice.
We will explore some of the key principles of Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness (TSM) that can be used as a simple framework for a “roadmap” of brief mindfulness interventions (BMIs). These foundational mindfulness practices can then be tailored to the needs of each individual client, enabling you to introduce each one at a gentle pace throughout your initial and follow-up consultations as you feel is appropriate to support your primary specialism.
