Title: You Don't Have to Scratch the Itch: Using Mindfulness to Regulate Emotions through Radical Acceptance, Compassion, and Detachment

This talk will provide information about what happens in the body and brain when emotional dysregulation occurs and how routinely practicing mindfulness can improve stress reactions.  Attendees will be guided through experiential exercises and learn practical tools to help clients manage their emotions through mindfulness. Additionally, clinicians will learn how to manage their own emotions, reactions/countertransference when working with clients in order to provide the best conditions for healing and well-being.
