Psychology Colloquium: 'Using Mindfulness in Therapy'
The Department of Psychology invites members of the University community to join them on Friday, Oct. 4, for the first presentation in the department's 2013–14 colloquium series. The program will take place from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in East Hall 104.
"If Not Now, Zen? Using Mindfulness in Therapy" will be presented by Gillian Galen PsyD, staff psychologist and associate director of training at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Mass., and clinical instructor in psychology at Harvard Medical School.
This presentation will introduce the concept of mindfulness and how it can be used in therapy to support both therapists and their clients. Mindfulness will be introduced along with clinical findings to support its use in therapy. Participants will learn mindfulness skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and will have the opportunity to participate in a few mindfulness practices that they can use with clients in therapy.
