Prevalent ageism has the potential to make aging transitions more difficult. Micro-aggressions, such as verbal or behavioral indignities, occur often. The conscious integration of mindfulness practices can be an antidote to these aging challenges. Mindful aging is about the need to free ourselves from constricting mindsets and the limits they place on our health and well-being – to be the guardians of our own health (Langer, 2009). The goal of this workshop is to develop mindfulness practices that contribute to overall well-being.

This workshop is intended for clinicians, researchers, and teachers who work with diverse populations - as well as individuals interested in learning about mindfulness in relation to their own process of aging. The workshop will provide brief information along with referenced handouts, experiential exercises, and will provide time for participants to share their own experiences and concerns.

 

Goals and Objectives:

Attendees will be able to:

  • understand the basic elements of the social       construction of aging as it relates to their experience;
  • understand some of the challenges and opportunities facing us as we age in our current culture;
  • understand basic elements of mindfulness practices;
  • understand how mindfulness practice can be used to enhance clinician and/or client well-being with regard to aging; and
  • know resources they can use for themselves and/or with their clients.
