Craig Schollenberger, board-certified diplomate and licensed clinical social worker, will host an eight-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training, from 7 to 9 p.m., Thursdays, beginning July 13. 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, as well as A Day of Mindfulness, to be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., August 20, at The Restorative Center, in Reading.
Mindfulness is part of a beneficial and effective program of treatment for trauma, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and addictive behavior.
With more than 170 hours of training from Kabat-Zinn, The Penn Program for Mindfulness and Zindel Segal, Ph.D., Schollenberger also participated in a 60-hour trauma training at Drexel University, in which the first line of treatment for every type of trauma was mindfulness.
Schollenberger offers counseling for individuals, couples, families and groups. Topics include, but are not limited to, clinical issues related to trauma, as well as adolescents and adults with difficulty attending to task.
