On Friday, November 4, 2022, from 9:00am to 1:15pm UCP of Maine will be hosting an ethics training, Avoiding the Ethical Risks of Burnout through Mindfulness Practice Plus: Thoughtful Approaches to Other Difficult Ethical Issues, run by Terry A. Fralich LCPC at Bangor Parks and Rec located at 647 Main Street in Bangor. In this workshop, clinical counselor, attorney and mindfulness teacher Terry Fralich will explore with us the ethical risks of burn-out and how mindfulness practice is an effective approach for maintaining our balance and handling ethical and clinical issues effectively. Terry will also review challenging ethical issues and risky situations in our work and a process for navigating it all successfully.
Terry Fralich is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and an attorney. Prior to becoming a counselor, he practiced law in New York City, Los Angeles, and Portland, Maine. Upon returning to Maine from California in 1986, he owned and ran a residential real estate company with three offices and fifty brokers. He sold the business in 1991 and joined the law firm of Norman, Hanson & DeTroy in Portland. During the time, he was engaged in business and the practice of law, Terry studied extensively with the Dalai Lama and some of the Western pioneers of mindfulness work. Inspired by their teachings and his own study of psychology, mindfulness, and meditation, he earned a master’s degree in clinical counseling, left the practice of law, and began his counseling and teaching activities. Terry is a Co-Founder of the Mindfulness Center of Maine. He has taught more than 500 seminars and trainings in the United States, Canada, and Australia in mindfulness, emotional intelligence, stress reduction, meditation, the latest developments in neuroscience, and the treatment of anxiety and depression. In addition, he is a meditation teacher who has led mindfulness and meditation retreats at major teaching centers. His first book, Cultivating Lasting Happiness: A 7-Step Guide To Mindfulness, was cited as one of “the 12 essential books on mindfulness.” His second book, The Five Core Skills of Mindfulness: A Direct Path to More Confidence, Joy, and Love, presents a clear exploration of the transformative power of mindfulness practice in our everyday lives. Terry has pursued his own mindfulness and meditation practice for 40 years.
