5-Day MBCT Teacher Training Intensive in Québec 19–304–01
Train to facilitate MBCT programs with guidance from Zindel Segal, one of its co-developers. This is the third module of our MBCT Facilitation Certificate.
Current treatments for depression provide relief for many people, yet they face significant challenges maintaining the benefits of treatment. This innovative 5-day intensive training and retreat will lead you through the program designed to prevent depressive relapse among people with a history of depression.
Based on the research of Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale and documented in their book Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, this program combines the tools of cognitive therapy with the practice and clinical application of mindfulness meditation.
The heart of MBCT lies in acquainting patients with the modes of mind that often characterize depression while simultaneously inviting them to develop a new relationship to these modes. Using your personal mindfulness practice to inform your psychotherapy is a crucial part of this process.
What To Expect
This training will combine elements of a clinical training workshop and a meditation retreat. You can expect to spend some periods in silence and others in active discussion and interaction. The course will follow a concentrated schedule, starting at 7am and ending at 8pm each day. Registrants will not be provided with a detailed agenda beforehand; instead the schedule and time breakdown will be addressed at the opening session of the retreat.
You will be given assignments to complete in the evenings and we recommend that you plan to use any remaining free time for rest, relaxation, and reflection on the day’s learnings.
Who Should Attend
Enrolment is open to healthcare professionals and social service workers who have a clinical background and a regular mindfulness practice. It is recommended but not necessary to have participated in an 8-week MBCT program and to have formal mindfulness training such as MBCT Basics and CBT Primer.
This 3-credit-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 135 Mainpro+ credits.
