Episode #6 - Mindfulness: Not Just For Hippies

Monica Tomlinson is currently completing her PhD in clinical psychology at Western University. The title of her presentation is: Where Eastern Tradition Meets Western Science: Mindfulness and its Application in Psychotherapy. The “third wave” of psychotherapy has incorporated mindfulness meditation as a psychological approach for putting space between thoughts, emotions, and behaviour. In this talk, she will offer an overview of mindfulness, introduce us to mindfulness meditation, and briefly describe how she has applied mindfulness to non-clinical groups (e.g., those with chronic pain, parents) and clinical groups (e.g., individuals suffering from psychosis).
