Autumn 2018 Ethical Mindfulness Practice for Health Care Professionals: Private Consultation Group


This is a private consultation group for regulated health care professionals interested offering mindfulness based interventions (MBSR, MBCT, MiCBT, MSC etc.) in a skillful, trauma informed manner. This three 3-hour session series assumes some familiarity with mindfulness and MBIs; sessions will combine mindfulness practice, inquiry, didactic instruction, and case consultation in an intimate and confidential peer group of other practicing health care professionals. Group size will be limited to five participants.

Dr. Kimberly Sogge C.Psych. is a registered clinical health psychologist, International Mindfulness Teachers’ Association certified mindfulness teacher, certified Mindful Self Compassion teacher and mindfulness practitioner with over 14 years of practice and retreat experience.

Each session in this three part consultation series will include a personal practice component with inquiry, a didactic component, and a consultation component.
