Previously, we focused on how mindfulness and psychotherapy fit together naturally. But let’s now look at the challenges of working mindfully in the present moment.
Previously we discussed empathy, social bonding, and trauma. The article ended with an example of a colleague of mine who, upon hearing the account of a young refugee’s traumatic past, went into a state of shock herself.
Empathy is essential for psychotherapy, Empathy is of course a core quality in psychotherapy and counseling, and is recognised as a key component in positive psychotherapeutic outcomes.
We interviewed Margaret Landale in 2016 in the run up to her workshop of that year on working with developmental trauma. Margaret is back with us this year to deliver a workshop called Exploring mindfulness as an effective resource in psychotherapy.
