MRE Level 1: Workshop 2: TEACHING MINDFULNESS to Individuals

Saturday, 10 October - Sunday, 11 October 2020

This is the second workshop in the Mindful Resilience Enhancement (MRE) teacher-training pathway that leads to a competency certificate in teaching mindfulness in professional practice. This workshop provides an experiential training in teaching mindfulness to clients in a 1-2-1 context, offering a very flexible way of teaching mindfulness that works with the specific needs of clients.

The workshops are sequential. Successful completion of Workshop 1 is prerequisite for attendance on this course.

This level of training is suitable for practitioners working in health, social and complementary practice. MRE teacher-training is designed for professionals with membership of a professional body that has a code of practice or ethics to provide a framework for accountable practice. This membership could be in a professional body associated with counselling, psychotherapy, health or social care, complementary therapy, education, human resources and potentially in other areas. This allows us to focus the workshops on the skills associated with teaching mindfulness and not have to require additional training in more generic aspects of safe professional practice. If you do not belong to a professional body or are still in training please contact us to see whether you are eligible to undertake the MRE training course beyond Level 1, Workshop 1. If you are without a membership of an appropriate professional body you may still be able to do the training if you can clearly demonstrate how you will be working in an accountable way when offering MRE. We will need to discuss this with you on an individual basis.

 

MRE TEACHER TRAINING

This weekend forms the second part of a professional teacher-training programme in MRE. MRE teacher-training is in 2 levels and a pathway to a competency certificate is available after each level. Level 1 MRE teacher-training focuses on teaching clients to stabilise their attention and self-soothe. Level 2 MRE teacher-training focuses on teaching clients how to turn towards difficulty they are experiencing with self-compassion.

Please be aware that MRE training is designed for professionals with membership of a professional body that has a code or practice or ethics to provide a framework for accountable practice. If you do not belong to a professional body or are still in training please contact us to see whether you are eligible to undertake MRE training course beyond Level 1, Workshop 1. Those without a membership of an appropriate professional body may still be able to do the training if you can clearly demonstrate how you will be working in an accountable way when offering MRE. We will need to discuss this on an individual basis.

The mindfulness-approaches you will have the opportunity to learn have been specifically developed to be integrated into both one-to-one professional practice as well as delivered as a course: they form a very safe set of approaches called Mindful Resilience Enhancement (MRE). These approaches are designed to be quickly and easily taught to clients in the session and then the client can practice them between sessions. In our experience professionals find that when their clients start to practice mindfulness it enhances the client’s responsiveness to the other interventions being offered.

MRE is supported by an extensive set of free to access audio files (see www.resilience.plus) and information sheets. This ensures that you or your clients using these approaches are not burdened by additional expenses.

Please see www.mre.re for further details of this approach.
