Recovery from anxiety and depression presents a formidable challenge for both clients and clinicians. Yoga and mindfulness facilitate clients' movement through recovery and beyond - rewiring the brain to experience greater happiness. These tools encourage therapeutic presence and self-compassion, allowing for greater intimacy in the client/therapist relationship. Yoga and mindfulness provides clients with new experiences for the mind and the body. Cumulatively, these experiences create an alternative view and new neural pathways supporting clients in responding to distressing experiences rather than reacting to them. Experienced practitioners and those new to yoga and meditation will benefit from this workshop. Join Debra Alvis, licensed psychologist and therapeutic yoga educator, for this informative seminar recording and explore empirically supported approaches of yoga and mindfulness through lectures, small group work and gentle postures. You will learn brief, easily implemented, clinical interventions for regulating emotions, improving mood and cultivating positive thinking. In addition, you will review scientific evidence supporting these approaches in clear language designed to encourage and motivate clients. Learn why these practices are effective and how they work to treat anxiety and depression. Debra has over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist and has been a meditator and yoga practitioner for 25 years. She is a seasoned and engaging presenter. Through daily yoga and mindfulness, she lives what she teaches, crediting these practices with transformative personal growth and an ever deepening capacity for equanimity and compassion. Debra has served as a clinical consultant for a research team investigating mindfulness and has trained hundreds of mental health professionals in the practices of yoga, mindfulness, and self-compassion. You will end this seminar recording with new, effective tools to improve clinical outcomes.
