Dates: 4th - 6th September and 25th - 26th September.
In this 5-day CPD (spread over 2 weekends) led by Dr. Samantha Bottrill (senior clinical psychologist and yoga therapist) and Heather Mason (founder of The Minded Institute, one of the world’s premier yoga therapy training organisations) psychologists and therapists can learn basic yoga practices that can easily be incorporated into their therapeutic work.
During the training you will learn:
Basic therapeutic yoga techniques are being used increasingly within psychological therapies, and with good reason; neuroscience research suggests that body-based practices increase neuroplasticity and improve affect regulation. In addition, mindfulness training promotes the inhibition of old habits, reappraisal of pre-existing assumptions, and the possibility to respond in novel ways. Yogic techniques naturally offer both improved mindfulness and greater emotional regulation, making it a perfect complement to psychological work. Furthermore, as a holistic practice yoga attends to mind, body, behaviour and social interaction, thereby offering a biopsychosocial approach that nicely aligns with a growing appreciation that healing requires attention to all aspects of the person.
Yoga also offers potential benefits for therapists themselves; a growing area of research suggests that both mindfulness and yoga reduce burnout in mental health practitioners, supporting greater wellbeing and resilience. Interestingly, research has found that patients who work with psychologists who practice mind-body techniques report greater overall satisfaction with therapy.
