Below is a list of Mindfulness training courses that we can bring to your own organization for a fixed all-inclusive fee, no matter where you are. Each course is accredited by APT, a leading independent provider of training in mental health and related areas.
A 2-day course.
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”.
A 2-day course.
Expanding understanding and developing mindfulness practices for self and client. This programme builds on the introductory course “Mindfulness: What it is and How to use it”.
A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)
This course concentrates much more on Mindfulness than it does on CBT. So it explains why Mindfulness meditation is likely to help recurrently depressed people, looks briefly at the published evidence that confirms that it can, and the NICE guidelines that commend it, but spends most of the time in experiential exercises and in discussing those exercises. There is a small amount of lecture input, but listening to lectures on Mindfulness is not a sensible pastime so the course focuses on understanding Mindfulness, acquiring the ability to practise Mindfulness meditation, and the ability to convey it to others.
