Mindfulness as a Potential Tool for Developing the Personality of the Social Worker
Kaczor Michal
This article represents mindfulness as a potential tool for the development of the social worker’s personality through which mental health and, consequently, physical state can be eff ectively maintained. At first, mindfulness is approached through the interpretations of various authors. Its perspective is further supported by the results of various scientifi c researches. The current state of mindfulness raising in social work (including traditional, offi cial courses MBSR, MBCT) is introduced. Through these courses mindfulness can be developed, improved and maintained. Finally, space is also given to the ‘pitfalls of mindfulness, i.e., to the risks that can be associated with its practice.
