Branch Training: MBCT for Cancer

June 6, 2024 @ 8:00 am - June 22, 2024 @ 3:00 pm BST


This is a specialist training for mindfulness-based teachers currently working or interested in working with people with cancer (or those with life threatening illness).

It takes place over 6 days with nearly two weeks between the modules which will give participants the opportunity to bring what they learn on the course into their work with clients and patients – and within their own everyday lives.

We will explore the values, practice and approach of mindfulness and cancer based on the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Cancer (MBCT-Ca) program, that was developed by Trish Bartley, who will be co-leading this training with Christina Shennan, a highly experienced MBCT-Ca teacher, trainer and supervisor. This training offers a unique opportunity to develop skills, inspiration and understanding and to connect with others working in psycho-oncology, cancer support, palliative care and other community, health, and education contexts. It is offered to mindfulness-based teachers, who have already undertaken some basic mindfulness-based teacher training.

Participants need to commit to the entire online training in order to receive a certificate at the end.

This is a training designed for those who teach mindfulness. It is not appropriate for those who have had cancer themselves and want some personal mindfulness training for their own wellbeing in relation to a personal experience of cancer.

Module 1 – Thursday 6th – Saturday 8th June 2024.

Module 2 – Thursday 20st – Saturday 22rd June 2024

Both modules will take place between 8:00 -15:00 UK time (with an hour’s break around 11:30)

The OMF provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend and take part in all aspects of 100% of the training event, including break out rooms, with their camera on.
