The main focus of the current session is to help participants see the connection between their cognitive slip-ups (which they were asked to track in the prior week’s homework) and the emotional reactions they have to those slip-ups (i.e., “falls,” as in “slips and falls”). Homework is reviewed to provide material for this discussion. This segues into providing psychoeducation on the hierarchy of attention, and Focused Attention mindfulness is again reinforced as a way to decrease slip-ups. Participants are introduced to the first of two Mindful Yoga series as another way to experience present-moment awareness, and as a complement to sitting meditation practice. Tracking pleasant events is also assigned for homework as a way to make the bridge between mindfulness practice and daily activities and life experiences.
