Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training Intensive (MBSR TTI) Course (Mar 29 - Apr 04, 2019)
Mar 29 - Apr 04, 2019 | CME 31.25 | USD $1720 | Clinton, Washington
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training Intensive (MBSR TTI) Course is organized by UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness and will be held from Mar 29 - Apr 04, 2019 at The Whidbey Institute, Clinton, Washington, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31.25 contact hours. Target Audience: This 6-day teacher training intensive is primarily intended for professionals wishing to teach MBSR. Those attending should be either professionals in a health or educational field, clinicians-in-training, or interested professionals who may not intend to deliver the intervention directly but have other professional interests in the topic (i.e. researchers, administrators, etc.). All participants should have at least a modest regular meditation practice and an established practice is preferred. Course Description: This 6-day teacher training intensive is highly interactive. Throughout the 6 days, trainees will move back and forth from experiencing the sessions of MBSR and working in small groups to begin practicing teaching the various components of the MBSR program under the supervision and guidance of the teacher trainers. Inherent in this teacher training is the necessity of a personal mindfulness practice as a platform from which to teach. The delivery of MBSR requires the teacher to teach from a personal integration of what it means to embody a non-judgmental present moment focus with an understanding of how this supports and strengthens such mind states as kindness, compassion and equanimity. This training will provide the opportunity to strengthen these teacher competences. Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Articulate an understanding of the foundational principles of the MBSR program • Demonstrate the basic MBSR teaching skills • Describe the central role of mindfulness meditation practice for general wellness and self-care in the regulation of emotions and behaviors • Articulate the rationale for a teacher’s ongoing mindfulness meditation practice in teaching MBSR • Discuss and outline formal and informal meditative practices and mindfulness as a mode of being in daily life.
