The Faculty of Science and Health has held an important workshop titled Acceptance and Commitment therapy Techniques in 15th January 2018 that presenetd by Dr. Vida.namdari.

Workshop Info:

​​​​Mindfulness based therapies are based on age old techniques that have been used
across the globe and have more recently been combined with CBT and scientifically

studied. As a compliment to CBT, mindfulness training enhances awareness of

feelings, thoughts, and behaviors as they occur, while emphasizing acceptance

of individual experiences.

Mindfulness has been described as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose,

in the present moment, and non-judgmentally” (Kabat-Zinn, 1994, p.4). Because

much of life stress stems from worrying about past or future events, present

focused training is a powerful method by which to handle discomfort caused by

unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Mindfulness based therapy is the primary pain management treatment at the center,

although it is also used for problems varying from work stress to extreme worry. The

center’s mindfulness based treatments include techniques such as mindfulness based

meditation and brief daily mindfulness exercises that are incorporated into daily living.

Goals of Mindfulness Training:

1) Gain attentional control and discontinue living “automatically”. Increase your ability

to shift attention, rather than allowing emotion to determine your focus.

2) Cultivate a nonjudgmental and more objective perspective of emotions, thoughts,

and physical sensations. You as a whole are much more than thoughts and emotions.

3) Increase ability to live in the present rather than focusing on the past or the future.
Live life to the fullest by focusing attention on current experiences in the here and now.
