Training Courses

The Association for Psychological Therapies (APT) offers the following courses in Mindfulness.

Mindfulness: Level 1

Teaching Mindfulness in Clinical Practice.

A 2-day course.

Mindfulness is a psychological intervention that we dream of: it works both for clients/patients and us, and its effectiveness is demonstrated not just by clinical studies but by the unusual number of people testifying to its benefit. Moreover it is a quick, simple concept with obvious validity and relevance. It fits with the thinking of those who maintain that "To live effectively and well cannot be a complicated thing, so any intervention to help people do so should not itself be complicated”.

Mindfulness Based CBT

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

A 3-day course.

This course concentrates much more on Mindfulness than it does on CBT. So it explains why Mindfulness meditation is likely to help recurrently depressed people, looks briefly at the published evidence that confirms that it can, and the NICE guidelines that commend it, but spends most of the time in experiential exercises and in discussing those exercises. There is a small amount of lecture input, but listening to lectures on Mindfulness is not a sensible pastime so the course focuses on understanding Mindfulness, acquiring the ability to practise Mindfulness meditation, and the ability to convey it to others.

The Mindfulness Masterclass

The Mindfulness Masterclass.

A 3-day course.

This is a course for people who have at least 6 months practice subsequent to receiving Level 3 APT-Accreditation (often much more). In lectures, the masterclass provides more depth on some of the topics in APT's Mindfulness courses but is mainly focused on developing skill, based around the following components: listening to and making case presentations, watching video demos by others, role-play/real-play where you interview others and they interview you, and establishing a stable system for support and development for yourself in this area post course. The result is that you enhance your skill and technique, not just your knowledge. Successful completion also gains you APT's Level 4 accreditation in the subject.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a helpful technique, but it is perhaps more than this, or most easily understood as an attitude or ‘way of being’.
