Participants will learn mindfulness skills that are particularly well suited for psychotherapists and their clients. Learning will be experiential and didactic.


Mindfulness in mental health can…

  • Enrich your experience of being a therapist
  • Enrich your clients’ experience, as they become more aware, moment-by-moment of both difficult and beautiful aspects of experience
  • Expand your choices of interventions for working the present
  • Possibly accelerate your clients’ progress as they increase awareness of their own experience and benefit from your use of mindfulness in session
  • Build a sense of well-being that comes from awareness, acceptance and relating more easily to the world


This workshop will explore the connection between Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and show how mindfulness  enhances CBT by giving the therapist material to work on in the present.


Donald Fleck has been practicing meditation for 30 years, beginning with trainings by Jack Kornfield and Thich Nhat Hanh, and moving towards a medical practice of mindfulness based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and studies with Tara Brach and Zindel Segal. Donald introduced mindfulness into his psychotherapy practice in 1996 as part of a treatment for panic disorder, and continues to explore additional ways it can supplement traditional therapies. He earned degrees at Duke (BA), Columbia (MBA) and Fordham (MSW) universities.  He is the author of Working the Present, Mindfully-Based.


Brynn Wallace has been meditating since childhood. She is a specialist in Mindfulness-Based and Somatic Psychotherapy for adults, with a focus on treating anxiety, depression and trauma. Brynn has a private practice in Manhattan and teaches group mindfulness classes for a non-profit, The Hope Program, in Brooklyn.  She earned her MSW at Portland State University, and is a Certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).
