    Absolutely LOVED this training. Lisa explores mindfulness from a neuroscience perspective, building the groundwork necessary to understand what mindfulness really IS, before offering clinicians some practical ways to incorporate mindfulness in play therapy sessions, whether non-directive or directive in nature! Just what I needed at this point in my career/exploration of mindfulness.
