New York, NY – Debra Burdick, LCSW, BCN, also known as “The Brain Lady’, teaches health practitioners how to work with, and achieve results with, Mindfulness Toolkits for Kids, Teens, and Adults with ADHD at seminars in Albany, Binghamton, and Syracuse, NY October 3, 4, and 5, 2012; and in Bensalem and King of Prussia, PA, and Cherry Hill, NJ, October 24, 25, and 26, 2012. The seminars are sponsored by CMI/PESI, a non-profit educational institute for professionals.
Based on extensive mindfulness research and her work with hundreds of clients, Burdick’s trainings utilize experiential techniques to teach mindfulness skills to therapists, teachers, and health practitioners. According to Burdick, the benefits demonstrated by research are compelling, and include improved concentration, a sense of overall well-being, and, more self-awareness. Clinicians and teachers who use the techniques say their clients or students improve in their daily activities – they can self-regulate their moods, focus better, sleep well, and experience success in school and at work.
The seminars are approved for Continuing Education credits for social workers, psychologists, other healthcare professionals, and teachers.
