Intensive one-day training workshop for the: Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE)

Intensive one-day training workshop for the: Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) intervention


Grounded in affective neuroscience, the Mindfulness-Ori- ented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) is an innovative, multimodal mindfulness-based therapy. MORE interven- tion unites complementary aspects of mindfulness train- ing, third-wave CBT, and principles from positive psy- chology into an evidence-based treatment for chronic pain, addictive behavior, emotion dysregulation, and psy- chosomatic conditions.

The workshop will be given by Prof. Dr. Eric Garland, the founder of the MORE Inter- vention. Prof. Dr. Garland is distinguished professor and associate dean for research in the University of Utah College of Social Work, as well as the director of the Center on Mindfulness and Integrative Health Intervention Development. Prof. Garland ini- tiated large clinical trials USA-wide that showed the efficacy of MORE in reducing pain symptoms and opioid dependence, and has published more than 195 scientific articles, the majority of which are focused on mindfulness. In addition to his clinical research experience, Professor Garland is a licensed psychotherapist and was elected a Distinguished Fellow of the National Academies of Practice in the USA in 2015.
