Mindfulness for Social Workers

Thursday, June 4

 9 AM to 11 AM

Virtual Zoom Webinar for 2 CECs

During this uncertain and stressful time, it is more important than ever for social workers to engage in practices that promote clear seeing, courage and flexibility. A personal mindfulness practice not only helps promote wellbeing for practitioners, it is also one of the most important elements in teaching mindfulness to others. Join Dana Schneider, PhD, LCSW, ACC, CMT-P, RYT 200 of Contemplative Insights on June 4 to deepen your own personal practices through skill development, discussion, and practice. In this session, participants will be invited to engage in a series of mindfulness meditations, reflect on their experiences, and learn how to develop or deepen a sustaining personal practice. Participants will learn mindfulness practices which enhance awareness, compassion and interconnectedness, and identify how these practices help address stress and overwhelm. This session is appropriate for social workers who are interested in, or are already, incorporating mindfulness into their personal and professional lives. Resources for ongoing support and learning will be provided.
