Maintaining Resilience, Mindfulness & Compassion in Work with Trauma Survivors (John Briere)


Discover a mindfulness approach to maintaining resilience and compassion when working with trauma survivors.

Categories: , ,


Through his understanding of the effects of early childhood adverse experiences and his “self-trauma model”, John Briere’s innovative approaches to helping trauma survivors have influenced generations of psychotherapists.

In this new program, John will introduce a hands-on, mindfulness, dharma informed approach to maintaining attunement, compassion, and equanimity in challenging psychotherapeutic situations.

Both philosophical and practical, this workshop will involve didactic presentations, brief mindfulness/meditation sessions, as well as case consultations and discussions.

  • How to maintain equanimity and grow as a therapist in work with challenging clients and situations
  • How to cultivate mindful attunement in the face of immense client suffering: Inviting pain to tea
