“Mindfulness and the Helping Relationship: Sustaining Gambling and Addiction Recovery”

Two issues of vital importance to gambling and addiction counselors are the quality of the therapeutic alliance and problems associated with sustaining relapse prevention in addictive disorders, including gambling addiction. Outcome studies consistently indicate that therapeutic alliance, defined by clients/patients as a warm, empathic, and non-judgmental relationship, predicts a substantial portion of the variance in good outcomes. Mindfulness training has been shown to be especially effective in helping therapists to be more fully present during the therapy hour, as reported by clients describing the experience of therapy. In addition, mindfulness training for clients has been shown to be a powerful tool to help them to become much more aware of the arousal of craving, and much more skilled at responding to craving effectively to prevent relapse into addiction.

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the helping professional to mindfulness meditation in order to facilitate establishment of a personal meditation practice. Participants will experience mindfulness practices focused on developing greater capacity to stay fully present during therapeutic encounters. Participants will have recordings of guided meditations available that they can use to further deepen their mindfulness practices. In addition, methods for teaching mindfulness skills relevant to relapse prevention will be demonstrated, with guidance as to their proper use in therapy.
