May 1, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Learn about the applications of mindfulness and mindfulness-based programs (MBPs) in contemporary society.
This training is for professionals to learn about the use of mindfulness in healthcare, social services, education, and the community. It emphasizes the two core MBPs – Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) – and serves as the first training module for the Centre’s certificate training pathways. It also covers Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and surveys the many other applications including how mindfulness is used as a tool for personal and professional resilience.
This workshop moves between didactic and experiential practices to cover the historical, theoretical, and scientific underpinnings of mindfulness. It includes an introduction to the three most common MBPs (MBCT, MBSR, MSC), as well as other clinical and educational applications of mindfulness. The experiential workshop explores how mindfulness is increasingly used to address stress, depression, anxiety, and other challenges in contemporary society. Participants are given the opportunity to lead a short mindfulness practice in smaller groups with feedback from the teacher(s).
