Wisdom therapy has been empirically established as an effective way to address the cognitive, behavioral, physiological, and social components related to anger, anxiety, and depression. Wisdom therapy aims to achieve its goals through the integration of empirically supported best practices both from Western psychological science, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, and from Eastern traditions, such as meditation.
This daylong course will enable health care professionals to add and apply practical and effective techniques to their clinical practice aimed at reducing anger, anxiety, and depression and increasing the health, well-being, and life-satisfaction of their clients, and of themselves. Multimedia, videos, and humor will be included to make for an entertaining day of learning and fun.
