NP0013, Mindfulness, Bonus Session 2, Ron Siegel & Michael Yapko


This lively Bonus Session, a dialogue between Ron Siegel, an assistant clinical professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, and noted hypotherapist Michael Yapko, will offer contrasting perspectives on the impact of mindfulness practices on therapy today. Siegel will explore the ways in which Eastern mindfulness practices are being integrated into Western psychotherapy, and how this union is affecting both. Yapko will discuss how understanding the role of suggestion can enhance mindfulness as a clinical tool.

After this presentation, please take a few minutes to reflect on what was striking to you about this particular session, how it fits in with the series in its entirety, and what you’re thinking after participating in this course and hearing such a wide variety of perspectives on a variety of applicable topics. What do you think—is mindfulness enough? What do you think was most interesting or made the most sense to your practice? What questions remain for you? Do you have any relevant experiences to share?

We encourage you to comment on this session and about the series as a whole, as this kind of deeper engagement is key to learning and understanding. Thank you for your participation, and we hope you come away from this course with a clearer vision of how we can effectively integrate mindfulness practices and psychotherapy to benefit ourselves and our clients.
