Mindfulness for Stress and Anxiety Workshop

Monday, November 16th, 2015

12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Room #5417

Are you feeling stressed?  Overwhelmed? Does it feel like you’re always somewhere else, ruminating about the past or worrying about the future?  Are you engaging in behaviors to manage stress that you would like to change?

Mindfulness is a practice of learning to attend to the present moment with more acceptance.  It is a systematic way of slowing down, observing one’s reactions, and relating to experiences with greater ease and compassion.  Mindfulness has been shown to enhance well-being by reducing the impact of stress and helping people cope with symptoms of anxiety and depression.  In addition, mindfulness can be applied to managing urges and cravings to use substances or other problematic behaviors such as self-injury and over-eating.

Join us for a workshop to learn the basic principles of mindfulness along with guided practices that can be easily incorporated in daily life.  All are welcome.

Dr. Jenifer Talley is a clinical psychologist and Assistant Director of The Center for Optimal Living and Assistant Director of The New School’s Concentration in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling.  She has expertise in helping people develop mindfulness practices to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, and other risky behaviors.

Rachel Wyner, M.A. is a Clinical Psychology Extern at Student Counseling Services at the Wellness Center Student Counseling Services.

Please note that no food or beverage will be allowed during this workshop.
