This workshop reviews the history, theoretical premises, and primary techniques of mindfulness. More specifically, the attendee will
learn the 4-step Touch-and-Return? method of mindfulness that is easily incorporated in his/her hypnotic practice. Special emphasis
will be placed on the application of ?decentering,? that is purported to be essence of mindfulness in comparison and contrast to hypnotic
dissociation. Neuroscientific and medical evidence of mindfulness will also be reviewed in terms of its efficacy in stress management,
depression, anxiety, medical disorders, and pain management. The attendee will also have a chance to experience the ?M&M mindfulness?
during the workshop in order to facilitate his/her understanding of mindfulness.
