SUSAN BOGELS PODCAST EPISODE
A huge thank you to Susan Bögels for joining us as our guest speaker earlier this week and to all who attended the event.
If you weren’t able to join us live, you can still access the podcast episode of the event and listen to Susan share more about these neurodevelopmental conditions and how mindfulness can help people who live with ADHD or autism. You can access the podcast (and previous episodes) using clicking the photo or by searching for ‘Oxford Mindfulness Foundation podcast’.
CPD WORKSHOP – 18th & 25th OCTOBER
If you are a professional working with (adult) clients with autism or ADHD and/or a professional who provides mindfulness training and wants to learn more about mindfulness for adults with autism or ADHD, join us for 2 x 3-hour workshops ‘Mindfulness for adults with autism or ADHD: What’s new?’ with professor, psychotherapist and mindfulness trainer Susan Bögels.
Key learning outcomes include understanding of autism and ADHD from an attention and information processing perspective, understanding whether and how mindfulness can help adults with autism and ADHD and learning the adaptations in mindfulness training (psycho-education, meditations and yoga, inquiry, homework, group process) to meet the needs of this population, and use their strengths.
