Mindfulness for Clinicians: An 8-week Intensive Course
UW-Madison – UW Madison Continuing Studies
October 12-December 7, 2023 – Thursdays, 8:30-10:30 am CT, live online over Zoom
This 8-week intensive course is for clinicians who want to incorporate mindfulness into their own lives to be more present, effective, and stable in their work, and to develop more confidence in applying mindfulness principles and tools with their patients (clients, students, staff). The course is appropriate for experienced practitioners as well as those with no experience in mindfulness or meditation.
We learn a specific aspect of mindfulness each week. By the end of the 8 sessions you will have a clear understanding of the core components of mindfulness. Each class includes short teachings, experiential practice, and discussion. We will practice being present, curious, kind and accepting of ourselves and each other, as we learn this tool, and the atmosphere of the class will be relaxed and open. Between class, assignments will include daily meditation practices, journaling, and specific informal ways to apply mindfulness in your life and your work.

Unlearning Internalized Misogyny
In this 2-part LIVE online Zoom webinar, we zero in on how our minds are conditioned by patriarchy to disempower ourselves, become trained “to other”, and keep ourselves small and cut off from our wisdom and authentic self. These oppressive habits, though “normal”, breed chronic stress, self-doubt, anxiety, and depression, and are part of feminism’s unfinished work as we continue to evolve towards gender equality.
Through brief lecture, guided practices, reflections, sharing in break-out groups and discussion, we review the core principles of mindfulness practice, and identify our internalized misogynistic beliefs and behaviors. You will take away specific practices to gain inner stability and freedom from “othering” to build trust in your authentic self. No prior meditation experience is required, this workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience.
Dates TBD – Two Part Workshop, total of 6 hours.

Every so often a book comes along that has the potential to change your life…Unshakeable Confidence reflects the author’s profound understanding of the roots of women’s suffering and provides a wise and practical guide to rediscovering self-love. A pure gem of a book!
This book is like having a mindfulness teacher at your side. It is informative and insightful—chock-full of techniques, meditations, and reflections that guide you to the self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence needed to be your authentic self. These are essential tools for all women.
Good medicine for tending the heart and uplifting the spirit.
Unshakeable Confidence illuminates the cultural conditioning that adversely affects nearly all women—in body, mind, and spirit. Its reframing of codependence, learned helplessness, and relationship addiction as “othering” is groundbreaking. And, most importantly, it gives all of us precise instructions for how to come back home to our essential, healthy, confident selves. Every woman needs to know and practice what’s in these pages.
