March 22, 2019
CORA Services Conference Center

Philadelphia, PA 19111
Mindfulness, originally rooted in ancient Eastern-world religious and spiritual philosophies, has gained rising attention over the last 60 years in the West. With this western emergence and growing anecdotal reports of success across the globe, researchers have begun to identify and explain the scientific underpinnings of what makes this ancient practice so beneficial and therapeutic to its practitioners. The knowledge and concepts of mindfulness continue to permeate many disciplines in the U.S. including corporations, schools and education, medicine, and mental health. This training will focus on the components of being a mindful therapist and maintaining a mindfulness-based practice as a mental health clinician.
Regan S. Lee-Kin, Psy.D. has been a psychotherapist at the Growth Opportunity Center for over six years. In addition, she has performed various administrative and therapeutic services for various agencies, community mental health centers, and area colleges for over 15 years. Receiving her doctoral degree in 2012 from Chestnut Hill College, Dr. Lee-Kin has earned specializations in psychological trauma and marriage and family counseling. Having particular interests in the mind-body connection, she has pursued additional education, training, and self-learning in the areas of kinesiology, holistic health, and most significantly, mindfulness and Buddhist psychology, which she utilizes in her daily practice as well as her personal life.
As a result of this interactive workshop, participants will be able:
• Define mindfulness in a therapeutic context
• Understand the importance and benefits of being a mindful clinician
• Identify and understand the different components of mindfulness
• Identify and understand 7 core areas of focus as a mindful therapist
• Practice implementing these core focus areas in basic as well as difficult clinical scenarios
• Learn and practice “tricks of the trade” to help maintain mindfulness in and out of the therapy session.
This program will benefit Psychologists, Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, Educators, Principals, Teachers, Graduate Students, and other practitioners within mental health and education who provide direct services and/or parent/teacher consultation for this population.
