IAM heeft in amenwerking met SeeTrue twee online MBCT update-dagen gepland.
The first day of this training will focus on scientific and professional updates in mindfulness-based programs (MBPs). Research-related topics will include assessment of mindfulness, efficacy of MBPs, mechanisms of change, and the effects of mindfulness training on kindness, compassion, and empathy. Professional issues will include adaptations of MBCT using the warp and weft framework, a brief introduction to two newer curricula (MBCT for Life and Finding Peace in a Frantic World), and the Mindfulness-Based Interventions – Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI-TAC).
The second day of the training will focus on ethical issues in mindfulness-based programs. Topics will include implicit ethical foundations, the role of professional ethics, Buddhist and secular perspectives, protecting course participants from harm and adverse events, and ethical communication about mindfulness.
As a preparation for this 2-day workshop, it will be helpful to read:
