Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
The Meadows Psychiatrist, Dr. Jon G. Caldwell, will offer REAC2H (Restoring Embodied Awareness, Compassionate Connection and Hope) Workshops, focusing on mindfulness and healthy relationships, to The Meadows Alumni free of charge before offering the workshops to the public. The workshops are being held on March 15 – 17 and April 26 – 28, 2013, in Scottsdale, Ariz. at the Franciscan Renewal Center. While the workshops are currently full, there are plans to offer more in the future.
Building on years of education, training, and clinical experience in the field of trauma recovery, Dr. Caldwell has developed a scientifically based workshop to help people understand how attachment difficulties in childhood can continue to affect them in adulthood. The REAC2H workshops will explore how different “attachment styles” are related to specific patterns of thinking and feeling in close relationships. Workshop participants will learn how to use mindfulness-based techniques to better understand, accept and regulate thoughts and emotions regarding close relationships.
The upcoming REAC2H workshops will be part of a research study, administered by Dr. Caldwell and funded by a grant from The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. As part of the research study, workshop participants will be asked to complete a set of questionnaires via a secure online website on three different occasions: before, one week following, and then one month following the workshop. Dr. Caldwell hopes that this research will shed light on the role of mindfulness in developing healthy relationship patterns.
