An Introduction to Mindfulness Practices for Anxiety (Online)
Five Wednesdays, January 25 - February 22
5:30 - 7:15pm
Potentially appropriate for 8.75 CEs
Join us for an introduction to mindfulness practices which may prove helpful for those struggling with anxiety.
According to the World Health Organization, anxiety is on the rise. The American Psychological Association reports that 33% of American adults will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. While medications can be helpful for some people, scientific research is now suggesting that mindfulness can be a tool – a recent study from Georgetown University suggests that mindfulness is non-inferior to medications. While mindfulness is not a panacea, it can be extremely helpful for some people struggling with anxiety. This class serves as an introduction to practices which may help reduce anxiety in some individuals.
While a licensed psychologist, Dr. Friedman is providing didactic and experiential education in these classes about mindfulness practices which may be incorporated into self-care. This class should not be considered interventionary, nor is it group therapy.
This program is being offered ONLINE, and will NOT be recorded.
All times are CT. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.
