Working with Addiction and how Mindfulness can help with Relapse Prevention – Part 2

Adele Rattenbury

In this part 2 of the presentation, Adele will be focussing on how the principles of mindfulness can be used by clients, their families and co-workers, to aid relapse prevention. Don’t worry if you did not attend her first presentation; all the essential elements will be covered.

Mindfulness involves purposely paying attention to the present moment. It also involves being aware of thoughts, feelings and emotions as they occur without being carried away by them. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental form of observation and thus one can develop a non-judgmental awareness of the present moment and the ability to tolerate difficult emotions and impulses by seeing them as temporary.

Adele Rattenbury has twenty+ years’ experience working in non-residential recovery, primarily from alcohol. She trained in Mindfulness on the basis of her Buddhist practice, and now applies it as part of relapse prevention programmes.
