A 2-day training workshop in Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement will be held July 18-19, 2014, at the University of Utah Bridge Training Clinic in Salt Lake City, UT. This training is designed for licensed health care professionals (social workers, psychologists, counselors, physicians, nurses, etc.) working with clients suffering from addiction, chronic pain, and stress-related conditions.
Participants will receive didactic and experiential instruction in theory, research,and clinical skill practice integral to the implementation of Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE). Research evidence on the MORE model will be presented, along with a review of the latest discoveries in neuroscience and basic biobehavioral science about mindfulness, addiction, and chronic pain.
Participants will practice the therapeutic techniques outlined in the MORE treatment manual (Garland, 2013) via role plays conducted in a clinical observation lab at the Bridge Training Clinic. Participants will receive live supervision in delivery of therapeutic techniques by Dr. Eric Garland, PhD, LCSW, the developer of MORE, who will observe participants through a one-way mirror and provide continual feedback through “bug in the ear” technology to optimize the delivery of therapeutic interventions.
At the completion of this 2-day workshop, participants will have a basic level of competency to use the MORE treatment manual to implement MORE for persons suffering from addictive behaviors and chronic pain conditions.
The cost of the training is $500.00 USD and includes two lunches and breakfasts. To register, click http://tiny.utah.edu/more2014.
