Date & Time: May 25th – 9:30am to 5:00pm

Title: “What You Practice Grows Stronger:  The Power of Mindfulness and Compassion”

Description: This full-day workshop weaves together scientific research with the art of mindfulness and compassion practice to explore the frontiers of mind training in society. Mindfulness and compassion are now becoming part of the mainstream culture and have become increasingly popular in every sector of society–healthcare, education, business and government—so much so that Time magazine declared we are witnessing a “Mindful Revolution.” Together, we will explore the latest advances in science and clinical research to effectively integrate mindfulness and compassion into our professional and personal lives. Specifically, we will learn about current findings in neuroscience, which offer the hopeful message that we can shape and sculpt our brain based on repeated practice. Specific mindfulness and compassion practices will be taught as well as essential underlying themes to be integrated into daily life. The intention of this workshop is to explore the potential of mindfulness and compassion in transforming our individual and collective lives.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify key elements of mindfulness
  • Specify why self-compassion is an essential part of mindfulness
  • Understand the scope of research findings regarding compassion, mindfulness and neuroscience
  • Explain why shame and self-judgment can be detrimental to learning and changing harmful behaviours

Working Relationally with Conflicted Couples - May 28-29

The Counselling Group is pleased to welcome Stephen Madigan MSW., MSc., PhD. as the presenter at our upcoming annual conference. This is an excellent opportunity for social workers, psychologists, mental health professionals, psychotherapists, physicians, family mediators, students, and others working with couples experiencing conflict whether they are reconnecting or going through a separation process. 

Through innovative approaches, Stephen demonstrates a counter-practice to individualism’s influence on counselling with conflicted couple relationships.  Through this work, he shows how recalling the ethical history of the relationship, from the relationship’s own point of view can act to transport the relationship away from dialogues of conflict and towards ethical reconstructions and newly found relational possibilities.
