Managing Mindfully: Uncertainty and the Risk of Overconfidence

member events Mar 24, 2022
bias uncertainty mindfulness

Mindfulness is offered in a variety of sectors, to diverse populations,  and for a variety of purposes. Mental health problems are not without risk, and those of us who work with people who suffer from them tend to be overly confident about diagnosis and how to treat those we are trying to help. This presentation will help us to bring more mindful attention to our difficulty with uncertainty, our unwarranted overconfidence, and how we might navigate our biases more skilfully.
