The live professional training program on Development of self and mind: a comparison of Buddhist and Western Psychology is presented by Mark D. Stauffer, PhD.
Eastern traditions have historically rich philosophical and psychological tenet systems related to mental health and development. Mindfulness and meditation practices have been adopted in Western counseling and psychotherapy without much of the traditional process for examining the nature of self and mind.
This program unpacks the Buddhist psychological and philosophical emphasis on direct experience of self and “mind” and what that potentially holds for clinicians.
This live program is intended for mental health and other allied professionals. (Intended Audience).
This live program is appropriate for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians. (Experience Level).
