Meditation, Yoga and Breathing for Depression and Anxiety

Filed under: continuing ed requirements,Uncategorized — admin @ 1:33 pm

I give local workshops on using meditation, yoga and breathing for stress, anxiety and depression and have created an online, home study course that mental health professionals and nurses can use use to gain 3 CEU credits. You can read about the online course here. I have a number of case studies with clients where I illustrate the sequences of poses, breaths and meditations that were used in our sessions. It is so wonderful to see someone grow, gain insights and make changes from states of anger, sadness or agitation into deeper harmony and inner peace. Social workers in Florida need to get 30 CEU credits by March 31, 2015 to renew their licenses. Check your own state for requirements and the online, home study course is approved by various boards in the country.

I find that clients often will quickly say that breathing or meditation doesn’t work because their minds are always spinning various emotions and thoughts. I think a lot of people have tried taking deep breaths and then give up. Please don’t give up if you or clients didn’t have initial success taking a few deep breaths. (more…)

I’ve also taken a very interesting eastern philosophy class on meditation and Patanjali. In Florida, March 31, 2015 is when the credits need to be completed but each state is different. (more…)
