The New Field of Contemplative Psychotherapy



In today’s challenging environment—when racial and sexual violence, rising inequity, and reactivity are erupting everywhere—our society seems to be collectively facing traumas we therapists have long been treating privately. These traumas not only trigger our clients, but also reveal an insidious mental health crisis that challenges us as clinicians. This workshop traces that crisis to the pathological narcissism embedded in modern culture, and the instincts of self-enclosure wired into our brains. It will introduce you to the emerging field of contemplative psychotherapy, which integrates social neuroscience with timeless contemplative skills to enhance social engagement while accelerating healing and transformation.

Objectives

  1. Discuss how each brain level has networks for self-enclosure versus social engagement and its implications for clinician treatment. 
  2. Discover how self-enclosed networks fuel mental illness, while socially engaged networks support health and development. 
  3. Explain how mindfulness shifts neocortical absence to presence, compassion shifts limbic reactivity to resonance, and embodied methods shift brainstem stress reflexes to social resilience. 

Outline

Discuss how each brain level has networks for self-enclosure versus social engagement and its implications for clinician treatment. 

  • Understand the cultural and evolutionary roots of human narcissism. 
  • Learn how self-enclosing patterns are a general cause of psychopathology. 
  • Review the cross-cultural consensus between modern psychotherapy and Buddhist psychology and the costs of this pathology. 

Discover how self-enclosed networks fuel mental illness, while socially engaged networks support health and development. 

  • Review the biology of stress-protective versus socially engaged networks in the human brain. 
  • Relate this neurobiology to the psychopathology of common mental conditions including PTSD. 
  • Discuss the pivotal role of negativity bias in perpetuating self-enclosed processing. 

Explain how mindfulness shifts neocortical absence to presence, compassion shifts limbic reactivity to resonance, and embodied methods shift brainstem stress reflexes to social resilience. 

  • Link the potential for treatment to the current revolution in neuroplasticity. 
  • Understand the science supporting the effect of contemplative mind-training practices on shifting from self-enclosed to socially engaged processing at all main levels of the brain, 
  • Explore the potential impact for psychotherapy and public mental health of widely integrating these practices into treatment and health education.
