In this intermediate level continuing education course, Dr. Marjorie Schuman will explore a mindfulness-informed paradigm for clinical exploration in psychotherapy, “Inquiring Deeply,” which uses Buddhist methods of awareness practice (mindfulness, investigation, and inquiry) to amplify and unpack psychological experience. Through the meditative process of asking questions and listening deeply for answers, Inquiring Deeply consciously engages our experience of problems in an ongoing way which invites the wisdom within them to unfold.
Informed both by the teachings of Buddhism and by relational psychoanalytic theory, Inquiring Deeply weaves together awareness practice and psychodynamic understanding into a cogent framework that integrates mindfulness into psychotherapy as an aspect of self-reflection rather than as a clinical technique.
This intermediate level continuing education course is designed to help mental health professionals:
