The next 2-day training workshop in Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement will be held July 28-29, 2018 in Salt Lake City, UT by Dr. Eric Garland, PhD, LCSW.
Salt Lake City is the gateway to world-class outdoor recreation in the beautiful Wasatch and Uinta Mountains.
In this training workshop, participants will receive intensive didactic and experiential instruction in implementing specialized mindfulness techniques and other clinical skills integral to 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 clinical role plays. Participants will receive live supervision in delivery of therapeutic techniques by Dr. Garland, the developer of MORE, who will observe participants and provide continual, real-time feedback to optimize the delivery of therapeutic interventions.
Unique mind-body therapy techniques, advanced cognitive-behavioral skills, and strategies from positive psychology will be presented to address common clinical problems including:
- Craving and unhealthy habit behaviors
- Physical and emotional pain
- Catastrophizing and rumination
- Stress reactivity and anhedonia
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 training is approved for 13 CEUs from the Utah National Association of Social Workers.
