National Psychology Week 2015 – Join us at Attuned Psychology to learn to be mindful in an ever-connected world

Over the last few years, Attuned Psychology has participated in National Psychology Week with great success, so we are excited to participate again in 2015!  This annual Australian Psychology Society initiative aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help people and communities lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.

This year the focus is on how to improve the management of stress and increase wellbeing in the community, with a particular focus on the latest phenomenon FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) that is getting in the way of people enjoying their own lives and often contributing to the experience of high anxiety and depression levels.

This year we are pleased to be facilitating several events. The first event at our practice will give the public a chance to learn more about the art of being present, using mindfulness to focus and enjoy the moment, even in the face of FOMO and a range of other distractions. Details are featured below:

Monday 9th November – Public event 

Mindfulness in an Ever-Connected World

Your mobile phone keeps you Attuned to so much more than just who’s calling these days. Between notifications for Social Media, your email, SMS messages calendar alerts and who-knows-what-else, your phone is a wealth of in-coming information (and maybe information overload).

How can you strike a balance between staying connected without becoming dis-connected from the here-and-now?

Alexandra Frost, Clinical Psychologist will lead a mindfulness exercise exploring how to stay focused while dealing with distractions.

Please bring your mobile phone to this event with the sound turned ON!

Secondly, a  couple of members of our team at Attuned Psychology have also been asked by one of the hosts Steve Davis to appear on The Adelaide Show, a wonderful local podcast and look forward to chewing the fat over a glass of wine to talk all things psychology and break down the myths about what we do, how we work and answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask a psychologist. Listen out for the podcast that will be recorded at Attuned Psychology on Tuesday November 10th and available to download and listen on Thursday November 12th here.

We look forward to welcoming you to our practice on Monday 9th November (remember to RSVP to reserve your spot as places are limited) and/or letting you in on our conversation with Steve Davis and his colleagues from The Adelaide Show. We are pleased to be a part of National Psychology Week 2015.
