HOBART: Improving Understanding and Implementation of Mindfulness-based Interventions

Monday, August 06, 2012
Mindfulness skills are being increasingly included in Western psychological therapies, especially with cognitive and behavioural techniques. However, integrating mindfulness training with core components of CBT skilfully is a complex and demanding process, primarily because the theoretical framework from which clinicians using mindfulness operate is either unclear or absent, and practitioners are often provided with ill-defined rationales for each skill to be developed. The most common confusion arises from the lack of differentiation between “mindfulness” and “being present”.

This seminar will expand our common understanding of operant conditioning and provide a strong neuro-behavioural basis for integrating mindfulness training with traditional CBT and other approaches. It is also an opportunity to learn from the principal developer of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT).

Presenter: Bruno Cayoun, DPsych, CCLIN
When: Thursday 30 August
Where: Room 209 soc sci  University of Tas.
Time: 6 - 8 PM 

 Pizza and drinks provided.

BRISBANE: Managing Your Emotions - re-train your brain

Thursday, January 19, 2012
Where: Redland Community Centre Inc., 29 Loraine St, Capalaba, Qld 4157. 

Format: 8 group sessions, each 3 hours incl. a tea break

Facilitator: Patrea O'Donoghue, MPsych, MAPS

Cost: $455 includes the 8 group sessions, all materials, 2 CDs with guided instructions, and light refreshments

Bookings: 07 3245 2117 or 07 3472 1361

This 8-week course is aimed at helping people better understand and manage difficult emotional experiences such as when feeling stressed, anxious, sad, depressed or angry. The course is based on Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT), a treatment approach developed by Bruno Cayoun, DPSych, clinical psychologist.

MiCBT is an approach that combines both mindfulness and the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). During this course, participants will learn a variety of mindfulness-based skills and approaches that encourage them to focus on their breathing and their body, rather than the thoughts that are likely triggering reactive behaviours and escalating the emotions. The course also looks at how other people and our emotions interact with one another and what we can do about that.

Mindfulness approaches have been demonstrated by researchers to be very helpful for people in better managing emotions and stress, improving depressed moods by helping avoid rumination, improving concentration, and generally result in feeling a greater sense of satisfaction with one's own life.
