Our mindset is the lens through which we view ourselves and our abilities. It influences our attention and motivation in ways that, in turn, affect our physiology and behavior. We know that our mindset can shape the way we feel and act, and we now know that it can also have profound and lasting effects on our health and well-being. Mindset interventions are proving to be effective for behavior change in business and academic settings. Mindset training protocols have also been applied in the areas of stress management, weight loss, and the doctor-patient relationship. This breakout session will present the most up-to-date empirical evidence for the use of mindset training, discuss its application in health behavior change, and provide practical tips on how to use mindset strategies in your own coaching or counseling practice.

Presenter Bio(s):

Dr. Dattilo received her doctorate in clinical health psychology from the University of Florida and completed her residency and fellowship in psychology at the Indiana University School of Medicine where she serves as a member of the teaching faculty. She currently operates a small solo practice in Indianapolis, Indiana and a boutique behavioral health consulting firm. She is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), and the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT). Dr. Dattilo specializes in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), a highly effective, short-term, behavioral treatment for a number of problems, including depression, anxiety, stress, and insomnia. In fact, CBT is considered to be the most effective non-medication treatment for most psychological and behavioral issues. CBT requires clients to work collaboratively with their CBT specialist both in session and between sessions. Because of its highly structured, problem-solving focus, improvement can be seen for most people in as few as two to four sessions. Dr. Dattilo is also one of the first practitioners in the country to use Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC), a new application of cognitive-behavioral techniques for performance enhancement, employee engagement, health and wellness coaching, and stress and burnout prevention.
