Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Cancer
Teacher Training LIVE Online
This is a specialist teacher training for mindfulness-based teachers currently working or interested in working with people with cancer (or those with life threatening illness). It takes place over 8 mornings which will give participants the opportunity to bring what they learn on the course into their work with clients and patients – and within their own everyday lives.
We will explore the values, practice and approach of mindfulness and cancer based on the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Cancer (MBCT-Ca) program, that was developed by Trish Bartley, who will be leading this training. This is a unique opportunity to develop skills, inspiration and understanding and to connect with others working in psycho-oncology, cancer support, palliative care and other community, health and education contexts. It is offered to mindfulness-based teachers, who have already undertaken some basic mindfulness-based teacher training.

The training is based around the MBCT-Ca 8-week program curriculum that has been widely used in many parts of the world for over 15 years – and has been found to have the potential to reduce anxiety and low mood and improve well-being and life enjoyment in people with cancer.
