In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our freedom and growth.” -Victor Frankel MBRP is an eight-week group-based treatment approach developed at the University of Washington for individuals in recovery from addictive behaviors which utilizes evidenced based cognitive and behavior strategies. MBRP practices are intended to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions that seem to control many of our lives. The mindfulness practices in MBRP are designed to help us pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of choices before each of us in every moment. Clients begin to change their relationship to discomfort, learning to recognize and increase their capacity for challenging emotional and physical experiences, responding to them skillfully, in ways that serve them, rather than reactively, in ways that are detrimental to their health and happiness. The primary goals of MBRP are: Develop awareness of personal triggers and habitual reactions and learn ways to create a pause in the this seemingly automatic process. Change our relationship to discomfort, learning to recognize challenging emotional and physical experiences and responding to them in skillful ways. Foster a nonjudgmental, compassionate approach toward ourselves and our experiences. Build a lifestyle that supports both mindfulness practice and recovery.
