15-Apr-12-mindfulnessIn this two-part series, Drs. Aguirre and Galen  gave an overview of mindfulness and how it can be useful for people with BPD and their loved one.  Although they  drew mainly on mindfulness practices in DBT, they  also integrated non-DBT practices such as Loving Compassion.  They  helped tol demystify the practice and discussed how one can start their own practice and incorporate mindfulness into daily living.  They discussed common pitfalls and challenges that often accompany beginning a mindful practice and gave callers an opportunity to ask questions about the practice.
