Mindfulness-integrated CBT Foundation Course

Overview

Mindfulness-integrated CBT is an established mindfulness-based therapy specifically designed to address a wide range of clinical and subclinical conditions. For mental health therapists to successfully implement mindfulness-based therapies, such as MiCBT, it is essential that they first develop their own skills before learning to implement them with their clients/patients. During the Foundation course, you will develop a sound understanding of MiCBT principles, theory and practice. Following this course, you may then enroll in the Applied Course and learn under supervision to implement Mindfulness-integrated CBT with your clients/patients. 

This foundational course will involve didactic, practical and experiential means of learning, including: 

  • mindfulness meditation (as traditionally taught in the Burmese Vipassana method) 
  • implementing the four stages of MiCBT, including mindfulness-based exposure and relapse prevention strategies 
  • masterclasses delivered online 
  • real case demonstrations on video and in a master class format
