Anxiety - What Are The Indicators?
Mindfulness is currently the fastest-developing area in mental health. Many therapists have come to regard cultivating moment-to-moment awareness as a curative mechanism that transcends diagnosis, addresses underlying causes of suffering, and serves as an active ingredient generally in most effective psychotherapies. The clinical value of mindfulness interventions has been demonstrated for most psychological difficulties, including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, drug abuse, insomnia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. And it doesn’t matter which therapeutic approach we take, be it psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, or any other. Mindfulness practices can be tailored to fit this needs of our patients. Mindfulness can also enhance emotional well-being of clinicians, helping us develop beneficial therapeutic qualities such as acceptance, attention, compassion, equanimity, and presence that enrich and enliven our work and help us avoid burnout. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 2. 3.
