Mtro. Eduardo BriseñoDirector LA Chapter | Trainer | Researcher
Mr Briseño has a Bachelor in Psychology and obtained his Master’s degree in Behavioral Sciences (M.Sc.) with an orientation in Neuroscience from the University of Guadalajara. His area of interest was the negative effects of psychosocial stress on emotional regulation, evaluated by brain electrical activity. This in turn led him to become interested in the therapeutic effects of Mindfulness.
Mr Briseño began his training in mindfulness skills with different Buddhist traditions, leading him to participate in multiple meditation retreats and in different local and international certifications in Mindfulness-based Programs (MBP). Mr Briseño became interested in specializing in mindfulness in clinical settings and has been training with Dr Bruno Cayoun in MiCBT since 2019.
Currently, he has a private practice in Guadalajara, Mexico, at the Applied Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Institute. He conducts clinical research in MiCBT at the University of Guadalajara and other universities around the world. He is co-director of the Latin American Chapter of the MiCBT Institute and will be a trainer of the Spanish-speaking courses and events. He continues to translate and disseminate MiCBT in spanish.
