Online: Trauma Informed Mindfulness
with Jenny Hannah
Sunday, August 16th, 2020 | 2:00pm – 5:00pm ET

Designed to support meditation instructors, chaplains, counselors, and therapists, this psychoeducational workshop will impart a foundational understanding of types of trauma, how to respond skillfully and prevent retraumatization, and examine assumptions surrounding mindfulness meditation.

We will examine our roles as meditation instructors, including unconscious power dynamics and how cultural considerations contribute to experiences of trauma.

Identifying our personal scope of practice, especially when experiencing multi-faceted roles within a meditation community will also be included.
