MBCT Practicum

The MBCT practicum, accredited by The College of Family Physicians of Canada, is the fourth module of our MBCT Facilitation Certificate Program.

The MBCT Practicum will immerse those interested in teaching the 8-week MBCT program as participants, facilitators and observers. Trainees will take on a variety of roles including teaching, providing and receiving feedback and developing skills of inquiry. Readings and home practice will be an essential part of the program. Relevant background will be provided in the areas of mindfulness, clinical research and CBT.

Participants Will Learn
• Ways to deliver the 8-week MBCT program in a systematic manner
• To engage in teach-backs to help hone their skills
• How to receive feedback to enhance their guidance and inquiry skills
• The underlying intentions, attitudes and attentional training skills developed in the practices/exercises
• To hold the group using the MBCT model

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for healthcare providers and social service workers interested in developing some foundational skills to facilitate the 8-week MBCT program. It is best suited for clinicians who have experience with meditative practices and who have attended an 8-week MBCT group as a participant.
