Learn to integrate mindfulness techniques into CBT treatment for clients with many psychiatric disorders and psychological difficulties. Mindfulness can be a helpful tool for clients who:

  • avoid, dread, or catastrophize experiencing negative emotion;
  • continuously focus on distressing physiological or mental symptoms;
  • engage in recurrent worry or rumination;
  • try to suppress their thinking; or
  • persistently engage in self-criticism.

Robert Hindman, PhD, will teach you specific CBT techniques for these clients, including how to develop a cognitive conceptualization. You will practice several kinds of mindfulness exercises and learn how to motivate and guide clients in developing a consistent mindfulness practice. Dr. Hindman’s research shows that many clients benefit from a 5-minute daily practice.
