The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center is sponsoring a free lecture in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, March 19 presented by Kay Colbert, LCSW, on the topic of “The Healing Power of Mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention.” It will be held at the Unity Church of Dallas Sanctuary from 7:00 to 8:30pm.
Colbert is in private practice in Dallas and specializes in substance abuse and addictive behaviors, mental health issues, trauma, pain management, anxiety, and women's issues. She is trained in Mindfulness, Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Colbert has participated in numerous professional trainings, including the Betty Ford Center, the Hazelden Foundation and with The Meadows’ Senior Fellow, Pia Mellody. She has a book being published in early 2013, “Engage the Group, Engage the Brain: 100 Experiential Activities for Addiction Treatment,” co-authored by Roxanna Erickson-Klein, RN, PhD.
This lecture will present simple and effective techniques that can be used to reduce stress, manage pain, maintain emotional balance, and help with relapse prevention.
