Mindfulness in Practice
March 19, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFree
Mindfulness and self-compassion are being explored by clinicians and researchers to help treat substance use and post traumatic stress disorder. Join us to hear clinicians and practitioners share their experiences — plus one veteran’s personal story on how mindfulness has helped him in managing PTSD. In these stressful COVID times, this conversation serves as a timely and insightful perspective on the current research to support the cultivation of mindfulness in a clinical setting.
Join us for a panel-style discussion followed by a question and answer session. The event will take place on Zoom Webinars. Please register to attend.
