Mindfulness in Psychotherapy

Mindfulness in Psychotherapy


With Rezvan Ameli, PhD

For most people, even the ordinary demands of life can cause some feelings of unease and stress, and these stressful thoughts and feelings may result in chronic mental and physical fatigue or anxiety.

The seemingly simple act of mindfulness may help reduce the impact of stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Mindfulness is the act of paying attention to moments of experience with an accepting and friendly attitude so as to observe with all the senses what is happening in each moment. The practice of mindfulness is an effective means of enhancing and maintaining optimal mental health and overall well-being, and can be implemented in every aspect of daily living. Mindfulness has been applied to a variety of mental and physical disorders and has also been useful within educational, military, and corporate settings.

In this video, Dr. Rezvan Ameli demonstrates three mindfulness exercises within a group therapy setting and also discusses the science and practice of mindfulness.

With Ronald D. Siegel, PsyD

Mindfulness is the central ingredient in a growing number of empirically supported treatments, and mindfulness practices hold great promise not only for personal development, but as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy.

In Mindfulness for Anxiety, Dr. Siegel works with a young man who presents with stress-related chronic neck pain. First he helps the client to see that the mind plays a critical role in his presenting problem. Next, using the therapeutic understanding that resistance to mental and physical discomfort exacerbates suffering, Dr. Siegel works to identify the physical sensations and emotions that the client is struggling to avoid.

Through practicing acceptance of pain sensations, anxiety, and other emotions, the client is able to become more comfortable with these experiences as they arise, placing him on a path toward freedom from his disorder.

By Martin Seligman, PhD, Randall C. Wyatt, PhD

The founder of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman, PhD, introduces Positive Psychotherapy.

In this landmark interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as "psychology as usual" might contend. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression.

Dr. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions like, "What was the best experience you ever had?" And he explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life.

After watching this lively, personally revealing conversation, you'll be eager to apply these innovative ideas to your psychotherapy practice!

From watching this program, you will:
  • See how Positive Psychotherapy incorporates the tenets of Positive Psychology including learned optimism, authentic happiness, meaningfulness, gratitude visits, and signature strengths.
  • Learn to apply new techniques in your psychotherapy work with clients to increase their happiness and well-being.
  • Understand the importance in psychotherapy of both getting rid of disorder and creating sustainable happiness.

  • "I was extremely impressed by Positive Psychology and Psychotherapy. I felt myself being effortlessly and intensely engaged with Seligman's authenticity and passion. Excellent!" - Vanna Schiralli MD, CCFP, FCFP - Assistant Professor, University of Toronto.

    With Zindel V. Segal, PhD

    In Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, Dr. Zindel V. Segal demonstrates a mind - body approach to helping clients who have experienced depression to prevent a relapse into depressive symptoms. Depression poses an ongoing challenge to staying well because certain thought patterns, usually involving rumination or self-criticism, often lead back to depression. By teaching clients mindfulness exercises, Dr. Segal helps them to recognize these thought patterns and, by being aware of them, to find healthy ways to work with and adapt to them.

    In this group session, Dr. Segal talks with four clients who have experienced depression. He then leads them through a series of mindfulness exercises, followed by a discussion explaining the benefits of mindfulness practices as a way to avoid relapsing into depression.

    By Ernest Rossi, PhD

    Advances in neuroscience confirm the importance of the mind-body connection. Watch pioneer Ernest Rossi demonstrate a Mind-Body approach in an actual therapy session in this 3-part program!

    Ernest Rossi brings to light important new research indicating that the brain is constantly growing and changing, and, with this, the profound realization that our mind and its responses can also change. In this program, Rossi works with Robin, who says she is constantly analyzing but doesn't know how to imagine. Rossi endeavors to elicit a sense of wonder in Robin, leading her in mind-body exercises that challenge her to think in new ways. In so doing Robin uncovers a belief that she always needs to have control, as well as a previously unknown desire to find some mental peace and quiet. Hosts Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos introduce Dr. Rossi and facilitate an enlightening discussion on the approach.

    From watching this program, you will:
  • Develop an understanding of the key components of Mind-Body Therapy, including examining symptoms as mind-body signals that need attention, and helping clients navigate between social constraints and their own creativity.
  • Gain insight into Rossi's therapy style, including how he asks basic accessing questions to tap into a client's mind-body connection.
  • Learn how to apply a Mind-Body approach to your own therapeutic work with clients.

    By Steven Hayes

    In this video, you will learn about the core ACT principle of cognitive defusion-a process of de-fusing from your thoughts and learning to accept them without struggle so that you are free engage with life more consciously and intentionally.

    In these sessions with clients struggling with depression and anxiety, ACT founder Steven Hayes and master ACT clinician Rainer Sonntag, demonstrate a variety of cognitive defusion techniques that therapists can easily integrate into clinical practice.

    Using "deliteralization," Hayes helps his client separate words from their meanings, examine her automatic thoughts and create some space between her thoughts and emotions. And in a session with an anxious and resistant client, we learn about "physicalizing" thoughts-giving them shape, form and definition so that clients can more easily disidentify from them.

    Synthesizing both mindfulness and cognitive behavior techniques, cognitive defusion is a therapeutic tool that every therapist should have in their tool box. As you watch these master clinicians help their clients move from depression and anxiety to hope and authentic engagement in the work of therapy, you will no doubt want to learn more about ACT.

    By watching this video, you will:
  • Gain a deep understanding of cognitive defusion.
  • Observe a number of different techniques for introducing and explaining cognitive defusion.
  • Learn about common pitfalls with cognitive defusion, as well as skills to recognize and remedy them.

    In this video, you'll learn about the mindfulness components of ACT.

    In a session with Tony, a client in recovery from addiction, ACT founder Stephen Hayes demonstrates techniques for helping clients slow down and connect with themselves at the beginning of sessions so that they can engage more deeply in the work of therapy. Utilizing an "eyes-closed" exercise, Hayes helps Tony contact his observing self-the transcendent awareness that resides below thoughts and emotions and can serve to ground us in troubled times. With commentary throughout, Hayes offers a script for bringing mindfulness practices into the therapy room.

    ACT co-founder Kelly Wilson then conducts a powerful piece of clinical supervision with a struggling ACT therapist. Seeking support for her work with a hostile, resistant and demeaning client, the therapist quite convincingly role-plays her own client, while Wilson introduces several brilliant techniques to help her manage her anxiety and engage more deeply with the fear and loneliness behind her client's hostility.

    By watching this video, you will:
  • Learn several different eyes-closed exercises you can immediately integrate into your work.
  • Increase your confidence at using mindfulness exercises in session.
  • Understand and learn to facilitate awareness of the observing self with your own clients.

    In this video, we learn about the importance of values in therapy and how to incorporate them into clinical practice.

    In his customary active and engaged style, ACT founder Stephen Hayes uses a series of mindfulness techniques to help Tony, a client in recovery from addiction, come into contact with his most deeply-held values and beliefs. Once these values are clearly established, Hayes works experientially with Tony to uncover the link between his values and his emotional pain, creating the groundwork for Tony to create goals imbued with meaning and purpose.

    We also get to see how the ACT model is applied to working with chronic pain patients in sessions with a teenager and an adult, each of whom struggle with severe daily pain. The "Acceptance" aspect of ACT is fundamental in working with these clients, since they cannot connect with their deeper values without squarely facing the reality of their chronic pain conditions. And in an impressive session with a depressed young mother, master ACT therapist Rainer Sonntag quickly and deftly helps her define her values as a parent and set goals for herself.

    In this video you will learn:
  • How ACT distinguishes values from goals
  • What ACT defines as the Pain-Values Connection
  • Ways to modify ACT techniques for increased effectiveness with adolescents

    By Ronald D. Siegel

    What is "mindfulness" and how can we actually use it with our clients? Understand the principles of mindfulness-oriented psychotherapy and its application for a range of clinical issues in this new video with mindfulness expert Dr. Ronald D. Siegel.

    As a mindfulness-oriented clinician, Ronald Siegel encourages us to help clients "befriend" their inner experiences rather than fight them-and even their resistance can be similarly identified and approached with acceptance. Siegel defines mindfulness as "the awareness of one's unfolding moment-to-moment experience with acceptance"; this attitude also characterizes the mindful approach to psychotherapy, which Siegel illustrates repeatedly throughout this informative video.

    Over the course of four live demonstrations, post-session debriefs, and plenty of commentary, you'll get a sense of the guiding principles of the approach, including practices you can start using with your clients right away. You'll see how the somatic elements of mindfulness support treatment for issues ranging from anxiety to chronic pain to childhood trauma, and you'll watch Siegel debrief with Victor Yalom after every session.

    Addressing the various types of mindfulness practices available and their respective uses, formal meditation vs. mindfulness, and how mindfulness can inform both our personal lives and our relationship to our clients, Siegel offers much to chew on in this definitive video. Be sure to add this one to your library today.

    By watching this video, you will:
  • Understand what mindfulness is, and how the therapeutic approach differs from formal meditation.
  • Discover tools and practices to use with clients exhibiting a range of clinical issues.
  • Learn ways to integrate mindfulness into other therapeutic orientations, either with experiential practices or an overarching stance.

    By Jon Kabat-Zinn

    In an era of smartphones, Facebook, and endless distractions, practicing mindfulness is a radical act. Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as purposefully and non-judgmentally paying attention to the present moment, as if your life depended on it. Preoccupied with planning for the future or ruminating about the past, the present moment so often gets completely overlooked, robbing us of the opportunity to be fully, consciously, and responsibly alive. Mindfulness is the antidote to this tendency to sleepwalk through our days, and an invitation to reclaim our lives.

    Mindfulness-based therapies have been empirically validated as highly effective for reducing stress and preventing relapse in depression and addictions. Furthermore, research indicates that therapy outcomes are much improved when the therapist practices mindfulness. Whatever your therapeutic approach, cultivating mindfulness will enable you to be more fully present with your clients, while enhancing empathy and strengthening the therapeutic alliance. Whether you're wanting to cultivate your own awareness of that of your clients, this video will point you in the right direction.

    By watching this video, you will be able to:
  • Define mindfulness and understand the significance of practice
  • Explain how mindfulness applies to parenting
  • Describe how mindfulness is used in psychotherapy
