Mindfulness-Based Treatments for Alcohol and Substance Use Disorders


Find out the latest strategies from the international leading expert on mindfulness in addiction at this not be missed workshop!

This one-day workshop provides an introduction to mindfulness-based interventions to increase awareness of triggers and automatic reactions in the service of reducing heavy drinking and drug use, as well as the risk of relapse to substance use following treatment.

Associate Professor Katie Witkiewitz is a leading expert in mindfulness based therapy for people with alcohol and other drug problems.
She worked closely with the late G. Alan Marlatt, developer of Relapse Prevention, the core evidence-based CBT intervention for addictions, and was instrumental in the evolution of Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention.
Suitable for new and experienced AOD practitioners, this not to be missed experiential workshop orients you to mindfulness-based interventions for reducing drinking and drug use, and the risk of relapse post treatment.

• Gain a deep understanding of the principles of mindfulness to enhance the art of your practice
• Walk away with real skills in mindfulness based relapse prevention that you can apply immediately

Katie will also talk about her research work and look at how the outcomes from three randomised clinical trials of mindfulness-based relapse prevention can be applied in the real world.
