WS21 – Mindfulness and Compassion: Tailoring the Practice to the Person

All Levels

Mindfulness and compassion practices hold great promise not only for our own personal development, but also as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy. They are not, however, one-size-fits-all remedies. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals—and this presentation will show you how to creatively adapt them to meet the needs of diverse people and conditions.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the three core elements of mindfulness practice
  2. Identify possible adverse effects of mindfulness and compassion practices and how to avoid them
  3. Specify how mindfulness and compassion practices can be tailored to the needs of particular types of clients
