Mindfulness, Healing & Transformation
With Jon Kabat-Zin, Ph.D.
When we first offered Bessel A. van der Kolk's 22nd Annual Trauma Conference on DVD, mental health professionals around the world asked for just a peek at Jon Kabat-Zinn’s closing presentation. Now, here is your chance to watch his inspiring speech!
Jon Kabat-Zinn has an important and powerful message that ALL people who help those in need must hear. He reminds us that we deal "with the full catastrophe of the human condition" and that, as professionals, we need to make sure that we take care of ourselves so that we are at our best, which in turn brings out the best in our clients every day.
