First, Do No Harm: Working Skillfully with Meditation-Related Challenges

A UCLA, UCSD & InsightLA Co-Sponsored Training

Intstructors: Willoughby Britton, PhD; Jared Lindahl PhD, David Treleaven PhD

Meditation can lead to medical and psychological benefits, but it can also produce a variety of unexpected outcomes – not all of them positive. Sometimes meditation-related experiences can be challenging, distressing, destabilizing, functionally impairing, or make us not want to continue meditating.

This weekend workshop will focus on the competencies one needs to work skillfully with meditation-related challenges. The training will include: detailed descriptions of different types of meditation-related challenges; the circumstances that contribute to their impact and duration; the different ways they are interpreted and appraised; and best practices for working with challenges as a meditation practitioner or a meditation teacher. Weaving contemporary research with experiential practices, this workshop will also address the importance of screening, monitoring, informed consent, and management strategies.

Our aim is to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to practice and teach meditation in a safe, supportive way.

Who this is for:

Mindfulness facilitators and clinicians who use mindfulness in their work, and interested others.

Schedule:

Friday February 22nd / 7pm - 9pm
Saturday February 23rd / 10am - 4pm
Sunday February 24th / 10am - 4pm

There will be an 75 minute lunch on Saturday and Sunday from 12:45pm to 2:00pm. Lunch will not be provided.
