                            Thousands of studies have documented the physical and mental health benefits of mindfulness in general and is inspiring programs to adapt Mindfulness based models for schools, prisons, hospitals, veterans centers, and beyond.

Mindfulness skills can assist in unraveling the complexity that often comes with addiction in the form of co-occurring symptoms.

                            This webinar will briefly review the research, relevance to effective trauma-sensitive practices, and provide three mindful practices with a script to try for yourself and with your clients or students.
