Taught by Willem Kuyken and Alison Yiangou this 2-day masterclass introduces a new curriculum that is intended for graduates of 8-week programmes to:

o Deepen and broaden the learning of the key themes from the 8-week curriculum
o Extend the learning to include
o The explicit cultivation of the attitudes of mindfulness, in both formal and informal practice
o The development of the positive valence system to support well-being and flourishing.
o Support participants in applying all that is learned in their lives, in ways that are consonant with their values.
o Provide a shared community of practice.
o Develop participants' capacity and confidence to deepen and extend learning independently.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is being delivered live online through the Zoom platform. With all our courses we work hard to provide a safe environment to enable participants to fully engage with the programme. To support us with this, when engaging online we ask that you consider your environment when participating in these sessions. Where possible please use a private space where you will not be disturbed so that you and the group can achieve the highest levels of participation and confidentiality. Where you are not in a private space, to support confidentiality we ask that you use a headset or earphones rather than the speakers on your device and as much as possible have your screen facing away from the others in the room.

Additional questions

This masterclass is primarily for experienced MBCT teachers who have already attended training in either the Finding Peace in a Frantic World or the Mindfulness (-Based Cognitive Therapy) for Life curricula. However, it may also be suitable for experienced MBP teachers who have taught 20 or more courses and also have a good familiarity with the confluence of Buddhist and mainstream psychology as outlined in Feldman and Kuyken’s Mindfulness: Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Psychology. Please advise how you meet the entry criteria for this training.

We ask that people who join our courses online have considered that both the environment and their technical equipment is suitable to engage in this format and support confidentiality for the whole group.
