The aim of this online training programme provides a solid platform for developing your teaching. The course is suitable for those who have completed the prerequisites for the course and are willing to work within the OMF’s Ethical Guidelines for MBCT Teachers.
This training also would enable you to register with the international register – ACCESSMBCT
The training is suitable for both clinicians and for those aiming to teach adults in a non-clinical setting. Once you have completed this programme you will have completed training to teach three MBCT curricula
Professionals working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach adults Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT-D) and Introducing Mindfulness.
Those not working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach adults Mindfulness for Life (MBCT-L) and Finding Peace in a Frantic World and Introducing Mindfulness.
Where we have, or expect to have, more applications than spaces, applications will be prioritised from those who have access to a population and setting where they are actively involved and will be able to introduce MBCT. Specifically we will prioritise applications where there is the potential to engage with marginalised or underrepresented communities and where we might be able to support the implementation of MBCT into non-English speaking communities through training bi-lingual teachers.
