Mind, Body, and Spiritual Practices in Social Work

Integrative body-mind-spirit practice is an emerging approach that is not widely included in social work education. However, evidence for mindfulness-based interventions is well-established for treating depression, stress, anxiety, and other diagnoses such as sleep disorders/problems, substance abuse, schizophrenia, PTSD, and developmental disabilities. Join us in this presentation by Caitlin Brown, LMSW as she discusses various complementary and alternative practices and their research efficacy. Participants will learn how complementary and alternative practices can be integrated into work with clients, communities, and for their self-care.
