Mindfulness for Addiction: A Masterclass for Professionals
Buy and Download >
In this masterclass Benedict takes as our point of departure the assumption that the more acquainted we are with our own addictions and compulsive behaviours the better we can support others around theirs.
We’ll begin by discussing what Buddhist and mindfulness-based psychology have to say about craving and desire and explore how these phenomena play out in our own lives. We’ll explore how we can bring this understanding to clinical work, in particular, helping clients/patients identify triggers, work with cravings, and manage the relapse cycle.
The session will be experiential in nature and we’ll be navigating the terrain through two key mindfulness practices from the MBRP programme* – the SOBER Breathing Space and Urge Surfing – which you can take away with you, to practice for yourself and/or with your clients.
