GOC boasts a significant number of clinicians who have been trained in Mindfulness and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. In fact, many of our clinicians practice mindfulness meditation together, and meet regularly in peer supervision groups. We have incorporated many of the tenets of mindfulness into our workplace, where we strive to practice acceptance, compassion and non-reactivity.
Many of our clinicians incorporate mindfulness skills into their therapeutic work (search our providers).
The benefits of mindfulness are now extremely well-documented, and range from reduction of stress and anxiety, increased attention, better relationships, reduced reactivity, and higher productivity. Mindfulness is now used widely in the workplace, as well as by individuals who want to improve day-to-day functioning and quality of life.
Our Mindfulness skills groups teach beginning mindfulness skills that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the individuals in their workplace or personal lives. For example, we provide groups for faculty members, students (primary, secondary and higher education), healthcare providers, businesses and other institutions. These groups may focus on ways to improve interpersonal interactions, improve productivity, manage pain, manage conflict, decrease judgment of self and others, and increase compassion for self and others. Groups can be held at our facilities, or at your school or workplace.
Our Mindfulness Leadership program teaches managers, directors, and executives how to lead through mindfulness and emotional intelligence, improving their own ability to function within their workplace, as well as to interact with their co-workers and staff.
