ROOM 702

Mindfulness — it's more than just a 21st century buzzword. We're seeing it widely integrated into our culture in various disciplines including education, business, and medicine. This 90-minute paper will provide an overview of integrating mindfulness-based strategies into the psychotherapeutic management of anger. Generally, there are two schools of thought in working with anger: One treats it as an emotional dysfunction, while the other, more comprehensive approach looks at the connection between the psychobiological state, and how it relates to lifestyle. In this session, we will explore how implementing mindfulness-based strategies can provide a new framework for anger management from a holistic perspective. Participants will learn specific tools and techniques that they can apply in their clinical practice.
