Meditation for Mental Health Professionals: Expanding Mindfulness

Helping you develop a meditation practice that sustains you as a therapist.

Are you a Mental Health Professional who would like learn a psychologically sophisticated process of meditation, reflection and recollection while earning continuing education hours?* This thought and emotion friendly approach to meditation encourages a process of clear discernment and adaptive response in the face of professional challenges. Mental Health Professionals report a variety of professional and personal benefits such as; improved self care, enhanced therapeutic presence, increased tolerance of difficult clinical situations and better ability to attune and learn from counter-transference.

These trainings will be of interest to people from a variety of clinical orientations and range of meditation experience, including those new to meditation as well as more experienced meditators. The themes of these trainings vary; while each includes sitting meditation, group discussion, exploration of meditative experience and presentations about Buddhist psychology. Because this is an individualized approach, it is taught in small groups of no more than 12 participants and provides a unique opportunity to honestly talk to peers about your meditative experience and challenges. Each training is tailored to meet the interests and experiences of participants.

Nelly Kaufer LPC teaches day-long workshops as well as more in-depth on-going groups and retreats for Mental Health Professionals. She is available to teach at professional conferences, mental health agencies, and in your community. Nelly welcomes your invitation to teach.
