What is your personal relationship to or connection with mindfulness?
I have been practicing mindfulness meditation for the past 2 years.
What is your professional work? As this is a mindfulness-based professional's network we require each member to disclose his or her profession (i.e. teacher, psychotherapist, MD, lawyer, etc.)
I am a family physician (MD, CCFP) and have a focused practice in Mental Health Care/Psychotherapy
Using mindfulness-based techniques in professional work
I am using Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy with individual patients for treatment of anxiety and depression. I have been doing professional development through the Centre for Mindfulness Studies in Toronto and this fall (2016) will complete an MBSR practicum with Steven Hick. I would then like to facilitate mindfulness groups of patients and have particular interest in working with people who are living with chronic pain and those who have cancer.
