hannah reese, PH.D.

Hannah Reese, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the anxiety and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders.   She received her B.A. in psychology from Wellesley College and her Ph.D. is Clinical Psychology from Harvard University. She completed her predoctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.  She is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Bowdoin College where she is developing and testing a novel mindfulness-based intervention for adults with Tourette Syndrome. She is also a founding member of the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction program at Mid Coast Hospital’s Center for Community Health and Wellness, where she offers mindfulness-based programs to the community.  


Mindfulness has been defined as “the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment” (Kabat-Zinn, 2003).  Over the past 50 years, mindfulness-based practices have become increasingly integrated into psychological interventions for disorders ranging from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Orsillo & Roemer, 2011) and Major Depression (Williams, Teasdale, Segal, & Kabat-Zinn, 2007), to Substance Use Disorders (Witkiewitz, Marlatt, & Walker, 2005) and Borderline Personality Disorder (Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Linehan, 1993).  

In this highly experiential workshop, attendees will review the current empirical evidence to support mindfulness-based practices for a range of different psychological disorders, discuss the theoretical rationale for a mindfulness-based approach, gain first-hand experience engaging in and leading these practices, explore the function and purpose of mindful inquiry, and discuss best practices for monitoring outcomes and safety.  Attendees will leave with a list of recommended books, apps, websites, and audio recordings to support their continued practice with their clients.

Learning Objectives:

After this workshop, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the empirical evidence to support mindfulness-based practices for a range of different psychological disorders. 

  2. Educate their clients on the theoretical rationale for a mindfulness-based approach. 

  3. Effectively guide their clients in brief, in-session mindfulness practices. 

  4. Understand the function and purpose of mindful inquiry. 

  5. Implement best practices for monitoring client outcomes and safety.
