New 5-hour CE course! Book (and e-book) available on Amazon.com. This CE test is based on the book “Mindfulness and the Therapeutic Relationship” (2010, 240 pages). Mindfulness, a set of meditation techniques originally derived from world religions, has been applied to healthcare settings in recent decades with great success for patients and therapists alike. This course explores the usefulness of mindfulness for the therapeutic relationship, with a major emphasis on the role of the therapist. Mindfulness and the Therapeutic Relationship by Steven Hick and Thomas Bien discusses the many applications of mindfulness to psychotherapy. Research and practice have shown that mindfulness is a tool for developing empathy, perspective, listening skills, and insight. Both experienced and novice therapists can benefit from learning and applying mindfulness techniques in practice, not only for reducing their own stress but also for improving client outcomes. Mindfulness as a generalist practice is considered, as well as specific applications of mindfulness within Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Substance Abuse, psychoanalysis, and family therapy. This course is relevant to psychotherapists in all stages of professional development. Course #50-09 | 30 posttest questions
