Training programme in adapted mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs)
An ever growing number of people are drawing on mindfulness in their work and using adapted mindfulness based approaches that are not the standard eight week programmes, such as MBCT or MBSR.
This training course is for people who wish to train to deliver mindfulness based interventions that are not the eight week programme. It is intended for those who don't need to complete the extensive training required to deliver MBCT/MBSR but who wish to be equipped to use adapted mindfulness based approaches safely and effectively.
This training is part-time and in 2019 lasts for 10 months from the first teaching day on 1 Feb to the last teaching day on 19th Nov 2019. Fees for the 2019 Adapted MBI training are £1,900. Applications for 2019 training are now open. 20 places are available, up to five of these are expected to be funded by Sussex Partnership. The closing date for applications is Friday 16th November 2018. The course handbook below gives a good idea of the curriculum and training requirements.

Foundation training in mindfulness-based approaches (MBCT/MBSR)
This course is designed for people wishing to teach the eight-week MBCT/MBSR programmes. The training uses an apprenticeship approach with a strong emphasis on supervised group facilitation, resting on a firm foundation of theory, regular feedback on teaching practice and daily personal mindfulness practice. The training model we use has been described in greater detail in the following publication: Marx, R., Strauss, C., Williamson, C. (2014). Mindfulness apprenticeships: a new model of NHS-based MBCT teacher-training. Mindfulness, DOI: 10.1007/s12671-013-0254-2. Graduates of the training, who have taught two groups, are eligible to apply for the national listing of teachers. The 2019 training is part-time and lasts a year from the orientation day (am) on 25 Jan to December 2019. The cost of training is £5,500. Applications for next year's training are now open. The closing date for applications has been extended to 26th October 2018. The course handbook below outlines the curriculum and training requirements.
