Texas Conflict Coach

In Your Brain on Conflict series, we kick off with Scott Rogers, Founder and Director of the Institute for Mindfulness Studies. What happens in our brain when we are engaged in an emotionally-charged conflict? Neuroscience or brain science has emerged with answers that help us begin to understand the physiological, emotional, and cognitive impact on us in these types of situations. One method for dealing with these intense situations is called mindfulness. We will explore what mindfulness is and share tips for how to practically apply techniques to manage conflict and the emotions you experience.

Scott Rogers is founder and director of the Institute for Mindfulness Studies. He is also Founder and Director of the Mindfulness in Law Program at University of Miami School of Law. His concentration on mindfulness is rooted in his belief that it offers the most effective means of introducing a contemplative practice to attorneys and law students, and to encourage meaningful inner work and growth, both professionally and personally.

In 1998, Scott began developing the mindfulness techniques that form the basis for Jurisight, the mindfulness-based program designed for lawyers. In 2003 Scott founded the online community, The Mindful Parent®. In 2009 Scott published “Mindfulness for Law Students: Applying the Power of Mindful Awareness to Achieve Balance and Success in Law School” and “The Six-Minute Solution: A Mindfulness Primer for Lawyers.
