Phase 1: Developing a Personal Practice

July 7th, 14th, 21st, & 28th, 2023: Fridays from 12:00 - 1:00 pm MDT / 6:00 - 7:00 pm UTC

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) is an empirically supported intervention which integrates mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive behavioral relapse prevention to empower individuals to achieve and maintain recovery. MBRP aims to support clients in cultivating greater awareness of internal and external discomfort, strengthen distress tolerance through the cultivation of a non-judgmental and accepting stance to the present moment, and respond to challenging experiences with intention. With mindfulness practice at its foundation, it is vital that clinicians offering the program have their own first- person experience with and rich understanding of this tradition of meditation practice. This training program offers the opportunity for treatment providers to build and deepen one’s personal practice as a means of supporting others along their path to wellbeing.

Learning Objectives:

Phase 1:

-  Outline the primary intentions of mindfulness meditation

-  Describe the differences between relaxation techniques and mindfulness meditation

-  Develop or deepen personal mindfulness practice through periods of formal meditation

-  Integrate mindfulness-based approaches to daily life activities and challenges
