Mindfulness Course

Mindfulness: What it is and How to use it, Level 1.

Mindfulness: What it is and How to use it, Level 1 is an APT-Accredited 2-day course from one of Canada's leading providers of Mindfulness training. We bring the training to your own organisation and up to 15 people can attend (for maximum cost-effectiveness), or attend the course as an individual. (Refresher course also available.)

Executive Summary:

Mindfulness is a psychological intervention that we dream of: it works both for clients/patients and us, and its effectiveness is demonstrated not just by clinical studies but by the unusual number of people testifying to its benefit. Moreover it is a quick, simple concept with obvious validity and relevance. It fits with the thinking of those who maintain that "To live effectively and well cannot be a complicated thing, so any intervention to help people do so should not itself be complicated”.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.

Written Feedback

Written Feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the 'Mindfulness: What it is and How to use it, Level 1' course has received.

“This has been one of the best training events I have ever been on in many, many years of work and attending training. I have been particularly impressed by the tutors flexibility in approach in the way she responded to the a) knowledge and experience of the group and b) the individual and group requests for application of the learning to specific area of work. I have attended many mindfulness courses in the past but none have left me feeling so empowered and motivated to commence my own personal practice. Thank you."

“A really excellent introduction to Mindfulness which has spurred me to learn more. Frankly I achieved more in these two days than on any of the previous courses on Mindfulness that I have previously attended ... Thank you for teaching me so much."
