Mindfulness is a specialised skill in awareness, attention, and acceptance. There is ever increasing evidence of the benefits of mindfulness based interventions within alcohol and drug treatment for stress reduction, craving management and relapse prevention. The aims of this one day experiential workshop are to provide an introductory overview of mindfulness, explore the application of mindfulness within alcohol and drug treatment, and give participants practical exposure to mindfulness techniques.
Presenters: John Kelly and Amanda Morphett
