Explore the therapeutic benefits of MBCT while looking at its clinical applications. This is the first module of our MBCT Facilitation Certificate Program.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) combines the practice of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy. This highly experiential workshop adapts this treatment to health-care providers for personal use. Participants will explore habitual modes of mind that characterize changes in mood while simultaneously developing skills and a new relationship to these states. In addition, participants will be introduced to the theoretical assumptions underlying the model as well as the application of MBCT in clinical settings.
Participants Will Learn
• Mindfulness-based interventions are applicable to dealing with negative moods, stress and anxiety
• How to use mindfulness-based cognitive strategies in your personal and professional life to increase resilience
• How to use MBCT practices in addressing depression and anxiety at an introductory level
Who Should Attend
Healthcare providers interested in learning MBCT for personal and professional resilience will benefit from this workshop as well as those who wish to learn about the clinical applications of this modality.
