Practicum in MBCT - curriculum training

Live online  $495 inc GST


The intention of the Practicum is to give you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the curriculum elements, and rationale of the unfolding practice and inquiry and how this is informed by the underpinnings of mindfulness meditation practice and theory, prior to beginning teaching and supervision.  We hope this will prepare you for your first round of teaching so that you are more grounded, knowledgeable and easeful as you engage with your participants.


 The Practicum has three main elements:

  • Viewing a weekly MBCT class, over the eight weeks (2 hours a week)
  • Reading material each week
  • Attending a live online seminar for discussion and exploration (1.5 hours a week).  During this seminar, some material will be presented by the teacher and then we will explore your questions that are arising.


For the essential reading we will be drawing on one main text each week to guide our explorations:

  • Segel et al, (2014) 2nd Ed, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Guildford Press.

This will be supported by a few supplementary readings occasionally.
