A four-stage transdiagnostic treatment approach
Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) is a sophisticated integration of evidence-based core principles of mindfulness and CBT. MiCBT consists of a four-stage transdiagnostic treatment approach and is applicable to a wide range of mental health conditions and ages. It is based on the integration of traditional methods of mindfulness training (Burmese Vipassana tradition of Ledi Sayadaw and U Ba Khin) with well-established principles and methods from cognitive and behavioural traditions.
This one-day workshop describes the theoretical framework underlying MiCBT. It will expand your common understanding of operant conditioning and provide a strong neurobehavioural basis for integrating mindfulness training with traditional CBT.
Join clinicians from around the world in this unique opportunity to learn more about MiCBT and to explore whether training in this empirically-validated intervention would benefit both your clinical practice and personal mindfulness practice.
The experiential workshop will involve learning material through various modalities, including:
- Guided mindfulness meditation practices as taught in MiCBT
- Live demonstration of delivery of Diary of Reactive Habits
- Guided Mindfulness Interoceptive Exposure Task and Experiential Ownership
- Frequent knowledge checks using Slido
- Video demonstrations of MiCBT skills with a client during real-life therapy sessions
- Live Question and Answer through chat
For the introductory workshop, no prior knowledge of mindfulness is assumed, but basic skills in cognitive and behavioural techniques are helpful.
Note that attending the workshop is NOT a prerequisite for registration in the Foundation Course (which is the first step in training in MiCBT delivery). Although the Foundation Course is primarily experiential, and clinicians are guided through the self-implementation of MiCBT, all material covered in the workshop is presented and discussed in the Foundation course.
As MiCBT is a mental health treatment specifically designed to address acute and chronic mental health conditions, professional mental health qualifications or enrolment in a professional training program is required.
