Overwhelmingly, you wanted to know how mindfulness affects the brain. So over the next six weeks, we'll be looking exclusively at that question.
Through a combination of new sessions as well as a few targeted re-broadcasts from our archives, we're bringing you a comprehensive look at how to harness the power of mindfulness to rewire the brain.
NICABM Introduces an Innovative New Format toEnhance Your Learning
We are excited to share with you an original format that we'll be using for the first time. In order to make this entire series even more valuable, we've added a new segment to focus specifically on clinical application.
To help us do this, we sought out two experts, practitioners who are ahead of the curve when it comes to integrating mindfulness into their work with patients. At the end of each session, they will be joining me for a TalkBack segment to give you specific ways to apply what you've heard to your clinical setting.

Here's what practitioners said about last year's
"Mindfulness and meditation have been in my life for some years now but your clear presentation helped me to understand even more their importance and ways to apply them in my life and work."
"I have just today tried to introduce mindfulness to a young patient with panic disorder and found that the explanation of developing "awareness training", which can serve as a first line of responding when the panic threatens, was a good opening introduction. I am eager to hear the other presentations on mindfulness."
"Fantastic! Educating clients about neuroscience, its impact on our lives, and the benefits of mindfulness to our well being is proving to be an effective path for positive change. I continue to be excited about the coming together of neuroscience, psychotherapy, and mindfulness! Thanks for this forum and the great presenters/interviewees!"
"I'm particularly grateful to find myself with a new insight, a new metaphor, a new way of putting in a nutshell either an already familiar concept or a radical new one - so stimulating, motivating, energising - and serendipitous the way this information somehow turns out to be the very thing that fits the work of the next day."
This series will give you a deeper understanding of mindfulness through the lens of the brain as well as practical application techniques to use in your clinical practice.
We want to help you take your practice to the next level and we've found that practitioners who succeed:
- continue to learn
- build new skills and gain confidence
- listen to experts at the forefront
- tune-in and update their skills on a regular basis
Here's what people have said about our past teleseminars
"This series of seminars was extremely informative and exciting. Each seminar provided an opportunity to learn about the topic from some of the leaders in the field. As always. Ruth did a wonderful job with her interviews and asked so many of the questions that we would all want to hear the answers. Being in Australia, it was extremely helpful being able to listen to the replays in my own time and to later have access to the written transcripts when I came across a situation in my practice where this knowledge was relevant. Thank you so much for a great series...This knowledge is vital for anyone working with clients to help them make changes in their lives."
"Another fantastic lecture. Thank you. Although trained as a psychiatrist, my focus has always been on using psychotherapy to help the mind change it's patterns. Dr Goldstein's exuberant outpouring of ideas and observations generated several approaches that I plan on focusing on."
"This series has been helpful in synthesizing the observations I have made while working with individuals who are suffering from relational trauma at the hands of the group (mob). Helping my clients visualize a fulfilling relationship with a social group may be an intervention that will help with the telling of their story."
In these valuable sessions, you'll hear from the experts on Mindfulness and the Brain, with both targeted re-broadcasts and new speakers.
