Course Description:

I used to feel stuck with clients, treating the same symptoms session after session, but seeing little progress. Does this sound like you?

I was spending my days seeing client after client, and they were all anxious, panic-attack prone or just unable to cope with stress. I was of no help. I was stuck in a rut treating symptoms; focusing on what was wrong rather than treating them as an individual and reinforcing what was right.

Incorporating MBSR into my session re-energized me and made me more confident in myself and my clinical work.

This evidence-based approach changed my life and has changed the lives of many of my clients. Now I want to share these strategies with you because I know that this work will transform the psychic and physical pain in your clients’ lives.

These tools are powerful and simple, and you can immediately start incorporating them into your practice to give your clients the skills to live in the present and put stress and pain behind them.

Join me in this 2-day workshop and leave with the tools that will transform your clinical practice – and help you with our own stress and burnout reviving you!

Here’s to healing,

Lucia

LUCIA MCBEE, LCSW, MPH, CYI

Lucia McBee, LCSW, MPH, CYI, began her Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction journey in 1992. Always interested in meditation and yoga, her mindfulness practice was inspired by a client with chronic pain. Looking for alternative treatments, she discovered MBSR, which requires a serious practice commitment from the teacher. She participated in professional training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in 1994 and the first MBSR Teacher Development Intensive at the Center for Mindfulness in 1997. She also completed training in Mind/Body/Spirit Medicine at the Center for Mind/Body Medicine in 2000. In 2008, Lucia became a certified Kripalu yoga teacher. Since 1998, she has taught MBSR to a wide variety of populations including mental health professionals, frail elders and caregivers, college students, persons with HIV, those recently released from incarceration, and courses for the general population.

In addition to teaching MBSR, Lucia is a licensed clinical social worker in both New York and Maine. Following her graduation from Columbia University’s School of Social Work and Public Health, she developed a pioneering practice using mindfulness and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to improve the quality of life in community, hospital and nursing home settings. Her book, Mindfulness-Based Elder Care,, is based on her innovations in adapting mindfulness and complementary and alternative medicine for elders and their caregivers. She has published numerous articles in peer reviewed journals and chapters in many books describing her adaptations of mindfulness. Her presentations have included national and international conferences. She regularly presents to and consults with institutional and community direct-care providers.

She is currently a freelance author, consultant and faculty at Columbia University School of Social Work. In addition, she teaches regular MBSR classes at Beth Israel’s Center for Health and Healing and gentle yoga classes in New York City.
