Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion Exercises into Psychotherapy
In this workshop we will engage in several mindfulness and compassion contemplative practices, examine scientific evidence of the effects of these practices, and investigate a framework for how to integrate these practices into psychotherapy. The goal is to understand how these practices work and how best to introduce and incorporate contemplative practices into clinical interventions.
