Description

The Advanced Training in Mindfulness Meditation: a Holistic Clinical Approach is a unique teacher-training program that is designed for those who are serious about integrating mindfulness into their life, developing their personal meditation practice and who would like to incorporate mindfulness into their clinical practice or in their meditation classes. The program is designed to teach practitioners how to meditate themselves and incorporate this in their own life before teaching their clients. Attestation will be given to participants who attend the 16-hour in-class program.

Over the last couple of years, there has been much advancement in the comprehension and the treatment of stress-related conditions - in terms of both medical and psychological approaches. However, clinical practice in the treatment of stress-related conditons still remains restricted to conventional emotional and cognitive methods. Despite the restricted position of clinical practice, there is growing empirical evidence demonstrating how mindfulness can help you and your client transcend stress and anxiety.

Necessity

Professionals need more effective tools in order to adequately help their clients manage stressful life events. Recent advances in neuroscience and mind-body research have provided new, exciting approaches to support health professionals in the treatment of stress-related conditions. Mindfulness-based interventions revolutionize healing approaches and significantly improve the effectiveness of psychological treatment. Successful practitioners have integrated mindfulness meditation into their own daily lives. Mindfulness has been shown to be effective with adults, teens, children and couples.

Clientele

Psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors or other health practitioners who wish to expand their skill sets.

This training will be recognized by the Ordre des Psychologues du Quebec for 16 hours over the course of two days.
