Elana Rosenbaum, MS, LICSW, is a leader in the clinical application of mindfulness meditation to cancer care. During this talk, Elana will speak from a personal and professional perspective, about her experience as a psychotherapist and her use of mindfulness in psychotherapy; particularly her specialty in working with cancer patients.
She has authored Here for Now: Living Well with Cancer through Mindfulness (Satya House, 2007), and Being Well (even when you're sick)(Shambala, 2012), the basis of many workshops, and created audio-CDs with guided meditations. In 1995 she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and subsequently underwent stem-cell transplantation. Her ability to thrive and embody mindfulness in the face of adversity led to the development of a mindfulness-based intervention for bone marrow transplant patients at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Emery University and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
She is adjunct faculty at the Stress Reduction Clinic, where she worked directly with Jon Kabat-Zinn as one of the founding teachers. She's been teaching and educating patients and healthcare professionals in mindfulness, including leading cancer centers, for over 25 years. Elana has a private practice in psychotherapy in Worcester, Massachusetts and is a sought after teacher, speaker, workshop leader and research consultant.
