Online Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Teacher Training Practicum


With Anne Twohig and Susann Barrett

Tuesdays from 11 January to 15 March 2022

10 sessions of 2.5 hours each




The Online 10-week MBSR TTP will provide health care professionals and educators the opportunity to practice teaching the curriculum to prepare themselves for teaching the first 8-week MBSR class. The themes, rationales, intention and practice skills of each MBSR class session will be reviewed, discussed and practiced.

Practicum Format

This Online 10-week MBSR TTP is highly interactive. Each week trainees will be asked to prepare for the entire class sessions, and then several participants in the group will be chosen to teach a practice or present a topic to the group followed by self-reflection. Constructive feedback from group members and the senior teachers will also be given.  There will be weekly home practice assignments so trainees may go through the 8 weeks of MBSR practice again with a group, as well as preparing for the entire next session, as a trainee will be assigned the teaching portion on the day of the meeting.  Registration will be limited for this training in order to provide an environment that promotes in depth learning in an atmosphere of intimacy and shared experience.

Prerequisites for Acceptance

Participation in this Online 10-week MBSR TTP is open to those who have completed a 6-day MBSR Teacher Training Intensive (TTI) or equivalent.  For more information on equivalency please CLICK HERE.
