In this month’s FSHD University webinar, psychologist David Younger will teach you about one of his favorite mindfulness practices. It will help to demystify the concept of mindfulness so you can put it into action in your daily life in a clear step-by-step process. He will provide a handout and guided practice audio to anyone who is interested.
David Younger, PhD, is a clinical psychologist based in Austin, Texas. He was diagnosed with FSHD at age four, the same time as his mother and grandmother were also found to have the condition. In a compelling blog post, he shared his personal journey of learning to accept his life with FSHD and moving beyond it to finding well-being and becoming a clinical psychologist. Today, “I have a 100% online video-based practice with individuals and couples,” he says. “My two main focuses are relationships and people with chronic health conditions. That said, I also see people dealing with depression, anxiety, stress and life-changes.” Visit Dr. Younger’s website for more information.
