Join Jill Satterfield and I for this special training focused on inner awareness, also known as interoception, and self-compassion practices to enhance one’s own meditation practices and work in clinical and community agencies. Beginners and those with previous meditation experience are welcome to attend. Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, CASACs, graduate students, and other mental health and substance abuse treatment providers are encouraged to join us as these skills will enhance their own practices and can be applied in various educational and work settings.
Learning how to anchor the mind on breath and attending to sensations in the body, our self-regulation skills and capacity to be with difficult experiences expands. Self-compassion practices have been shown to increase well-being and promote resilience during times of distress. We will provide instruction in mindfulness practices designed to cultivate present-moment awareness of breath and body, along with how to tailor your practice based on the recognition of what’s needed.
CEs for social workers and CASACs in NY State will be provided. The New School for Social Research's Department of Psychology SW CPE is recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #0199. This training provides 9 hours of continuing education.
