Brief content of the workshop

This workshop is based on both mindfulness and  cognitive/behavioral therapy. During the mindfulness exercises you practice to focus your attention. This will help you to be aware of what is going on in each moment and to relax obsessive thinking.  In this way you can gain a broader and more accepting view on your thoughts and feelings. Skills in constructive thinking will help you to identify unrealistic and unhelpful thoughts. In this workshop you will practice to change them into thoughts that are more realistic and beneficial for you.

  • During the workshop we exchange experiences to also learn from each other. You are expected to do some homework between the two sessions, which takes about 30-45 minutes daily.
