Course Description

This course is based on the renowned programme developed by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center 27 years ago. The course was originally offered in the outpatient clinic to those facing the challenge of living with illness, pain, depression, and chronic stress and is now increasingly sought by those wishing to learn about the benefits of mindful living in a structured programme. The programme also offers elements of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for those recovering from depression (Teasdale, Williams, and Segal). Professionals will learn about mindfulness as a way of being more present with themselves and their clients; learn how to take care of their own well-being more effectively; learn about the potential benefits of mindfulness based approaches for their clients. The programme is practise based, participatory and educational. Participants are required to commit themselves to one hour of formal daily practice at home. Guidance notes and CDs are provided.
