Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictions: Volume II

by Devin Ashwood
This video set will give you an excellent foundation for mindfulness-based therapy—particularly with clients in recovery. Here, mindfulness experts Dr. Sarah Bowen and Devin Ashwood offer a rich overview and a live group process demonstration using tools from Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP).

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictions: Volume II
In Volume 2, Dr. Sarah Bowen begins with an overview of her research and the three primary foundations of MBRP. Based on the idea that people tend to relapse when they’re feeling something they don’t want to feel, the method offers a well-rounded set of skills designed to support clients’ ability to identify, observe, and diffuse challenging internal states. From there, you’ll watch Ashwood facilitate key sections of an eight-week MBRP course. You’ll witness the practices of “urge surfing,” the “mountain meditation,” and the “SOBER breathing space,” among others, and you’ll see multiple demonstrations of how to lead group inquiry around each activity. Ashwood also provides useful commentary throughout, describing his goals and noting places where practitioners can make the methods their own.

"In this video you will be in the hands of two of the leading trainers and researchers in mindfulness-based relapse prevention in the world - Devin Ashwood and Sarah Bowen. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are gifted communicators. The balance of teaching, case examples and reflection is highly effective in conveying MBRP's background, theory and practice, whilst holding the heart of mindfulness-based programs. The videoplaces the MBRP teachers' experience front and central, supporting learning as part of a training pathway. We know from at least three high quality randomized trials that MBRP is effective; what these videos do is support prospective MBRP teachers develop the competencies to ensure MBRP's potential is realized through competent teaching that enables people overcome their struggles with addiction."
--Willem Kuyken, Professor and Director, University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre 

"These training videos provide an excellent introduction into how to bring a mindfulness based approach to working with relapse prevention for Addiction, both individually and within a group setting. They are skillfully presented by a trainer who has extensive knowledge of both the psychological and behavioral aspects of Substance Abuse and teaching Mindfulness based approaches. Through teaching mindfulness practices linked to common processes of relapse, the trainer demonstrates how to invite new perspectives and attitudes towards addictive behaviors that motivates change and develops mindfulness tools with which to respond and to maintain that change."
--Jody Mardula, Senior Mindfulness Trainer; previous Director of the Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice, Bangor University; Head of Counseling & Training for CAIS the North Wales Drug & Alcohol Agency for 19 years
