Workshop Description

Would you like to learn ways to live your life more fully, with greater control, balance, and resilience? Are you ready to engage more actively in your health and well-being? Do you want to learn ways to incorporate mindfulness into your interactions with clients and patients?

Then join us this summer for our 5-day Mindfulness Tools and Practices Workshop!

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a blend of meditation, body awareness, and yoga: learning through practice and study how your body handles (and can resolve) stress neurologically.

This challenging and life-affirming workshop is based on the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program founded by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts’ Medical School. MBSR is evidence-based and has been featured in countless media segments and hundreds of scientific research articles and is now offered all over the world in hospitals, schools, sports, and business. Research shows that using the mindfulness practices taught in MBSR improves health, decreases depression and anxiety, improves coping with chronic illness and pain, and increases a sense of balance and well-being. Recent research has also found that practicing mindfulness decreased health care providers’ stress and burnout rates and improved their communication with patients.

The Mindfulness Tools and Practices Summer Workshop is designed for anyone who would like to learn ways to reduce stress and discover a deeper sense of balance and well-being. It is also suitable for professionals who want to learn more effective ways to cope with work stress and reduce burn-out and who would like to incorporate mindfulness practices into their work with clients and patients.

Gabrielle R. Chiaramonte, Ph.D., and Joanne Taormina, LMSW, are experienced MBSR teachers who have adapted the lessons of the 8-week MBSR course to this 5-day intensive format. They will guide you in this engaging, highly participatory, and supportive workshop. Through presentations and discussion you will learn about and engage in mindfulness practices and you will learn how to integrate mindfulness into your daily life.

Upon completion, you will …..

  • Be able to use mindfulness practices and tools to cope more effectively with short- and long-term stress
  • Be able to use mindfulness practices to improve communication and reduce work burn-out
  • Have a better understanding of how mindfulness improves physical and mental health and increases resilience

  • Have resources to continue mindfulness practice

Health care professionals will also know how to …

For you to gain the greatest benefit you must be prepared to attend all five days of the workshop.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
