Mindfulness Training for Living Well (MTLW): An 8-week meditation healing program that provides skills for behavior change and teaches how to live well in stressful situations, including chronic illness. MTLW fosters healthy community connections by strengthening mindfulness and managing chronic illness and stress to maintain healthy and enjoyable behavior.
Mindfulness Training for Primary Care (MTPC): An 8-week meditation healing program with an approach developed in Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). It aims at primary care adaptation and includes the use of mindfulness and chronic disease self-management to support healthy behavior change in ways to live better.
IFS(Internal Family Systems) views the symptoms of mental health as various expressions of parts rather than pathological aspects. It presents a way that helps you understand how each part works together and how to heal the structural dynamics such as their functioning and conflicts, and alliances. This treatment can be particularly effective for those experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD, and drug abuse-related trauma. IFS presents a new approach to the field of psychotherapy and counseling and provides numerous examples and techniques for meditation-based healing.
CBCT(Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) includes training that improves attentional stability, emotional awareness, and analytical reflection that helps you better understand yourself and your relationships with others.
It supports individual resilience, promotes a comprehensive and accurate understanding of others, and ultimately strengthens altruistic motivation. It forms new relationships with your experiences through affection and compassion, which are more positive ways to benefit yourself and others.
