Mindfulness and Compassion for Clinical Problems:
The convergence of old and new ways to deal with suffering
Over the past two decades, the use of Mindfulness and Compassion has become an area of increasing expansion in the clinical context and within the scope of the study and practice of the physical and mental health.
In this new millennium we have been witnesses to the fact that the combination of the Buddhist practice of mindfulness and western psychological paradigm has favored the development of a wide variety of mindfulness-based interventions, aimed at treating various physical and psychological disorders in different populations, which have been implemented and evaluated different empirically validated treatment protocols
Each time are more health professionals that they discover that the principles and practices, taught for more than 2,500 years to relieve suffering, to keep the enormous promise of favor the personal development, improve the therapeutic relationships and effectively treat the physical and emotional suffering of their patients.
In this lecture, Didonna, PhD, will discuss the evolution of the integration of Eastern and Western approaches to suffering, and analyze how it is possible to implement and integrate effectively mindfulness practice in clinical contexts.
Thursday 19 October 2017: 18:00 to 20:00 hours.
