“An Introduction To Cultivating Mindfulness to Support Recovery” will be presented on Tuesday November 27, 2018; from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Elizabeth A.R. Robinson, MPH, MSW, Ph.D. Mindfulness practices have been found to be effective in supporting sustained recovery from substance use disorders. This presentation will define mindfulness, describe research supporting mindfulness’ benefit, and provide opportunities for the audience to experience and cultivate mindfulness. Lastly, we will tie these experiences and research to the process of recovery, making explicit the connection. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with addiction and their families from getting help and getting well. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is provided. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of services for people with substance use disorders.
