Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an 8-week, empirically-validated and insurance-reimbursable therapeutic mindfulness intervention shown to be effective for prevention of depression relapse with increasing evidence for treating symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress. Based on the research of Drs. Zindel Segal, John Teasdale, and Mark Williams, and documented in their book "Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression”, this professional training combines the practice and clinical application of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy.
The MBCT Teacher Training Intensive (TTI) is designed to cycle through the 8-week MBCT curriculum in two ways: First, participants are led through the program by the instructors and then, using teachbacks, participants are supervised as they guide each other through the cardinal mindfulness practices and cognitive therapy exercises.
Throughout this live stream training, didactics, experiential practice, and small group process—including daily meditations, yoga, and periods of silence—are relied upon to consolidate the participants’ learning of basic mindfulness group leading skills for clinical settings. Self-knowledge gained can be used in helping clients in emotional distress.
