MiCBT Masterclasses

MiCBT Masterclasses

Overview

Despite the efficacy of Mindfulness-integrated CBT as a transdiagnostic approach to treating a wide range of mental health conditions, it is inevitably complex and clinicians need as much assistance and training as possible to improve its use, especially with high comorbidity and complex or reluctant clients. 

The aim of the masterclass series is to assist therapists already trained in MiCBT to deepen their skills and make the most out of the MiCBT approach. You will learn useful strategies that can make a marked difference in your therapy outcomes. It will offer the space to discuss problems you commonly or occasionally encounter in your clinical work and will provide tools to address them. 

Our masterclasses are specifically designed to assist mental health professionals who have already undertaken at least basic training in MiCBT and implemented MiCBT with their clients under supervision through the Applied Course. It will be an opportunity to learn directly from Dr Bruno Cayoun, the principal developer of MiCBT. 

Teaching Approach 

Masterclasses last 2 hours and are offered online only. A masterclass is a live presentation where you watch the trainer discuss a specific topic and answer and discuss related questions in real time. Although you are invited to send questions that you may have related to the masterclass topic, it is not a requirement for you do so in order to attend. To prevent distractions and maximise the focus on the masterclass theme, only topics related to the masterclass theme will be discussed. For example, if the theme is “improving interoceptive exposure while in crisis”, queries about how to use the Socratic dialogue will be addressed in relation to this theme only. 

To ascertain a timely, focused and content-efficient delivery, masterclasses do not offer online interactions during the event, so you are very much encouraged to send any related questions you may have, via the dedicated online form following your registration. Please note that questions are read anonymously and there will be no way for the participants to know who asked the questions. 

Masterclasses are segmented into two parts. In the first (longer) part, the trainer discusses the chosen theme in some detail.  In the second (shorter) part, the trainer will answer questions previously submitted. 

Masterclasses are conducted online using Zoom.  This is accessed through your internet browser and you do not need to purchase any software - all you need is a computer with good internet connection, a headset with microphone and a webcam. Information on accessing the masterclass with Zoom is available after registration.

I found that Bruno was an excellent teacher, and it helped a lot that I could see him interacting with other students because often they had questions I wouldn't have thought to ask. I would definitely recommend this course to other practitioners and am looking very forward to taking the Applied Course as soon as possible!

Thank you for this very experiential and evidence based course. I now have a thorough understanding of the integration of Mindfulness and CBT. I also feel more competent in both my own practice and in applying MiCBT with clients.

This course taught me skills that I have benefited from personally, and so I am confident that MiCBT will also be of benefit to my clients.
Jannel Gatlabayan - Cleto, Consultation - Liaison Psychiatrist, Philippines commented on 02-Jul-2014 03:21 PM5 out of 5 stars
Participating in the Foundation Course helped me integrate mindfulness in my daily living and experience CBT firsthand. Before I begin to think of helping others with MiCBT, I need to focus on myself. Going through the course gave me that opportunity which I may hopefully translate to my practice as a psychiatrist when I am ready to make the next step. Our trainer/therapist, Sarah, was great and the module was very well constructed. MiCBT is revolutionary and I am very glad to have taken it.
Amelie Tee, Psychological Consultant, Singapore commented on 02-Jul-2014 01:08 PM5 out of 5 stars
The weekly training was particularly effective to sustain the new skill acquired, and learning from peers. Definitely helpful for my personal development and integrating it into my services.

The MiCBT program promotes a true evolution in how we practice and learn how to help and support ourselves and our clients. The focus on experiental learning cannot be under-estimated and definitely helps promote a greater wellness within the professional as well as the client. 
I would highly recommend this program to all health professionals interested in evolving their understanding of mental wellness practice.

A really worthwhile introduction to utilising Mindfulness along with CBT. The eight week structured course, which included online discussion with other course participants and a teacher, was a great learning opportunity.

The experiential component of the course was challenging but ultimately beneficial for learning and integrating knowledge re MiCBT

The open forum provided an opportunity to hear from other students and share similar experiences throughout our eight week practice, providing motivation to continue.
