As a fully-integrated and adherent, relational Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) program, Sunrise Residential Treatment Center truly values the concept of mindfulness. Mindfulness is one of the core skills taught in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. At its essence, mindfulness is simply being present; paying attention to what is happening right now, without judgment. Research shows that this level of awareness assists in emotional regulation.
Sunrise is excited for the opportunity to team with Behavioral Tech, a Linehan Institute Training Company, to host “Mindfulness and Reality Acceptance for Personal and Professional Practice,” a three day training (April 24-26) providing two days of psycho-education and one full day of mindfulness practice to mental health professionals around the country. Randy Wolbert, LMSW, CAADC, CCS, Sensei while be providing the training in beautiful Southern Utah near the mouth of Zion National Park. Randy is a DBT trainer with Behavioral Tech and has been practicing DBT since 1995. He was a contractual trainer with BTECH since 1998 and transitioned to a full time trainer/consultant in 2015. While learning and practicing DBT, he began independent mindfulness practice and later became a Zen student of Marsha Linehan. Randy was recognized by Willigis Jaeger as a Zen teacher in 2016 and was confirmed as a Zen teacher (Sensei) in 2018 by Marsha Linehan.
“Marsha has always kept mindfulness training close to her heart” says Brad Simpson, DSW, LCSW, Executive Director of Sunrise Residential Treatment Center, “and we are so excited to have the opportunity to have someone who has trained at her feet come to our area and help us explore new ways to implement the skill into our daily practice.” For more detailed information and to register for the event, visit https://behavioraltech.org/events.
