Training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
May 30, 2015 10:51AM
Craig Schollenberger, licensed clinical social worker and board certified diplomate in clinical social work, will host an eight-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training from 7 to 9 p.m., Tuesdays, from July 14 through September 1, with A Day of Mindfulness scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., August 22. The course includes 22 hours of formal instruction, a copy of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s book, Full Catastrophe Living, printed materials and CDs of guided meditation developed specifically for this training.
The benefits of MBSR—rooted in a tradition that is thousands of years old—have been studied and documented since 1979. MBSR has been shown to support people in their efforts to lead a balanced life, respond differently to stress and improve emotional difficulties.
Schollenberger has over 170 hours of training from Jon Kabat-Zinn, The Penn Program for Mindfulness and Zindel Segal, Ph.D., among others. In addition, he participated in a 60-hour trauma training at Drexel University, in which the first line of treatment for every type of trauma was mindfulness.
Cost: $399, includes training and materials. Location: 4 Park Plaza, Ste. 371, Wyomissing. For more information, call 484-474-0984, email [email protected] or visit MindfulnessInReadingAndBerks.com. See ad, page 25.
