General Information:

Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) is an evidence-based sophisticated integration of mindfulness core principles and traditional CBT. MiCBT consists of a four-stage model of treatment applicable for a wide range of conditions and ages. It is based on the combination of traditional establishment of mindfulness in Theravada teachings (Burmese Vipassana tradition) with solid and well- established theoretical principles of cognitive and behavioural traditions in the West.

.

The aim of this introductory workshop in MiCBT is to introduce the integration of mindfulness training with core principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to improve our way of addressing chronic conditions, crisis and prevent relapse in a wide range of psychological disorders. It will describe the important theoretical framework underlying MiCBT and introduce participants to the use of these skills across a wide range of chronic and acute conditions.

.

This workshop will provide opportunities to practise mindfulness skills under the guidance of an experienced teacher.

.

The workshop is also Week 1 of the eight-week MiCBT Foundation Course for Mental Health Professionals. It is a comprehensive introduction to MiCBT and can be taken independently without proceeding further with the eight-week Foundation course.
