March 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Mindfulness-based treatments are emerging as additional intervention options for individuals struggling with various psychiatric disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, major depressive disorder, and addiction. This event will bring together researchers and health professionals who have extensive experience with mindfulness in research and in clinical settings. The panel will explore the underlying brain mechanisms supporting mindfulness, current research practices, as well as existing and potential future clinical applications of mindfulness techniques.
