Hosted by: National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
Presented by: Mary Ann Dutton, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Georgetown University Medical Center>
Over the past several years, there has been a growing awareness of the benefits of mindfulness-based approaches for healing from interpersonal trauma. This webinar will provide an overview of mindfulness practice and discuss the ways it may be useful for survivors of interpersonal trauma, including domestic violence. This webinar will also discuss the rationale, feasibility, and preliminary effectiveness of mindfulness training as a trauma-specific intervention.
Dr. Dutton has completed an NIMH-funded study examining the effectiveness of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for PTSD and depression among African American women who are also survivors of trauma. Dr Dutton also offers MBSR to the general community through Georgetown Medstar.
