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.

The training course is open to both NHS staff and people who work outside the NHS. Fees for the 2022 Adapted MBI training are £1,900, with an additional cost of a weekend retreat. There are usually some funded or part-funded places available for Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust staff.

Applications for the course that starts in February 2022 are now open.

Further information can be found in the 2022 handbook:

Applications should be submitted before 1st December 2021. Applicants who are external to Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SPFT) are welcome to submit their application forms early, for an early selection decision. 

A decision on whether the training will be held in person (in Brighton) or online via Zoom will be made based on the which option best suits the majority of applicants and on any Covid safety restrictions in place at the time of the training. If there are sufficient applicants, then it may be possible to run two parallel versions of the course, one online and one in person.  We have previously run the course online in some years and in person in others, and found that both formats work well. Applicants will be asked to indicate on their application form whether they are willing and able to attend in person and/or online, and whether they have a preference. We will let successful applicants know which option (online, in person or a mixture) has been selected before the end of December 2021. After which, they can decide whether they wish to accept the offer of a place.
