Connecting from the Inside Out: Mindful Awareness Promotes Interpersonal Effectiveness
Overidentification with mental contents, excessive self-reference and ceaseless discrepancy monitoring perpetuate symptom expression in physical and mental disorders. Mindfulness meditation, among other contemplative practices, enhances access to an alternative mode of processing that is less reliant on these strategies, instead, promoting effective regulation through acceptant, present oriented and somatically informed states of mind. In recognition of this promise, secular, structured programs designed to teach mindfulness in a variety of applied settings have proliferated, with this very dissemination being lauded as the vanguard of a revolution in health care and society. Zindel Segal will describe some of exciting clinical and neural outcomes in this field and guide brief mindfulness practices to provide participants with an experiential understanding of this work.
Recognize the cognitive, affective and somatic markers of the doing and being modes
Practice and inquire into mindfulness of the breath and body
Understand how mindfulness can increase the repertoire of adaptive responses during conflictual interpersonal interactions
For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
