Course Description

Combining mindfulness to strengthen emotional regulation with existing empirical supported post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatments can improve outcomes through:

  • Increasing engagement.
  • Increasing compliance.
  • Decreasing the level of ruminations in PTSD.

Several psychotherapeutic interventions incorporating training in mindfulness are clinically relevant to traumatic stress. PTSD treatment could benefit from including mindfulness into the therapeutic process. This would include areas such as the neuroscience of mindfulness, assessment instruments for mindfulness, mechanism of mindfulness and the relation between mindfulness and other techniques. Evidence suggests that mindfulness can improve the therapeutic results and the outcome of PTSD clients.

Mindfulness can be used in two ways:

  • As an emotional regulation support technique for existing empirically supported PTSD treatments.
  • As a stand-alone treatment (mindfulness based cognitive behaviour psychotherapies).
