GOLD COAST: An 8-week group therapy course to help you deal with Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Friday, August 31, 2012

What is Mindfulness?  

Mindfulness involves paying attention to each event experienced in the present moment within our body and mind, with a non-judgmental, non-reactive and accepting attitude. In learning to be mindful, we can begin to counter many of our everyday sufferings such as stress, anxiety and depression because we are learning to experience events in a more impersonal, detached and acceptable way.  

There is a growing number of therapy approaches that incorporate mindfulness training. Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) is one of these approaches. It offers a practical set of evidence-based techniques derived from mindfulness training together with principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to address a broad range of psychological disorders and general stress conditions.  

This 8-week group therapy, offered with 8 individual supplemental sessions, will follow the principles of MiCBT and involve active mindfulness training as well as psychological interventions. It will be offered to adults experiencing stress, anxiety or depression by a clinical psychologist, Mikako Naito, at her Tugun clinic on the Gold Coast. The number of participants will be limited to 8. Child minding service can be arranged on site for a fee.

HOBART: Improving Understanding and Implementation of Mindfulness-based Interventions

Monday, August 06, 2012
Mindfulness skills are being increasingly included in Western psychological therapies, especially with cognitive and behavioural techniques. However, integrating mindfulness training with core components of CBT skilfully is a complex and demanding process, primarily because the theoretical framework from which clinicians using mindfulness operate is either unclear or absent, and practitioners are often provided with ill-defined rationales for each skill to be developed. The most common confusion arises from the lack of differentiation between “mindfulness” and “being present”.

This seminar will expand our common understanding of operant conditioning and provide a strong neuro-behavioural basis for integrating mindfulness training with traditional CBT and other approaches. It is also an opportunity to learn from the principal developer of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT).

Presenter: Bruno Cayoun, DPsych, CCLIN
When: Thursday 30 August
Where: Room 209 soc sci  University of Tas.
Time: 6 - 8 PM 

 Pizza and drinks provided.
