28th SEPTEMBER 2019
C in MBCT
With Ruth Baer
The workshop will offer opportunities for participants to explore, both through experience and through discussion, how the integration of a cognitive conceptual framework with intensive training in mindfulness meditation helps participants in MBCT classes to respond kindly and wisely to distress, and how it addresses key processes that create vulnerability to depression and contribute to the persistence of low mood.
WHAT IS THE MASTERCLASS ABOUT?
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) represents an integration between two very different traditions: the eastern tradition of insight meditation, founded in Buddhism, and the more recent western tradition of cognitive and clinical science. In order to become MBCT teachers, we need to understand, appreciate and respect the contributions of both traditions.
This workshop invites participants to explore the “C” side of MBCT. What exactly is the cognitive understanding of human distress that underlies both cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and MBCT? What are the intentions of the two approaches? What are the differences between CBT and MBCT? And what do they have in common?
The workshop will be both interactive and experiential. It will offer opportunities for participants to explore, both through experience and through discussion, how the integration of a cognitive conceptual framework with intensive training in mindfulness meditation helps participants in MBCT classes to respond kindly and wisely to distress, and how it addresses key processes that create vulnerability to depression and contribute to the persistence of low mood.
WHO IS IT FOR?
You are eligible for this training day if:
• You are actively working on the OMC’s MBCT teacher training pathway and have completed any of the modules, for example: an MBCT course as a participant, a silent retreat, or training days devoted to practice teaching in pairs or groups.
• You are a mindfulness teacher who is already teaching mindfulness-based interventions and you wish to increase your knowledge of these topics.
Who am I?
I’m a clinical psychologist, recently retired from a career as a professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky and very pleased to be working at the OMC. My interests in mindfulness include research, teaching, training, supervision, and practice. I enjoy taking a broad perspective, and so I’ve studied a wide range of mindfulness-based interventions, including MBCT and MBSR as well as DBT, ACT, and MBRP. Much of my work focuses on the conceptualization and assessment of mindfulness, effects of mindfulness-based programs, mechanisms of change, and professional training and ethics in the mindfulness field.
What do I do?
At the OMC I work with the MBCT teacher training pathway and collaborate on manuscripts based on the data coming in from the MYRIAD project. I also teach mindfulness courses and work with competency assessment.
Why I love working at the OMC
The OMC is an international leader in mindfulness research, teaching, and training, and is at the forefront of discussions that are critical to the development of the field. I had the great good fortune to spend academic year 2015-16 on sabbatical at the OMC and fell in love with the warm and welcoming community of friends and colleagues doing fascinating and important work. For someone with my interests, it’s the ideal place to be.
The masterclass will be taught in English with no translation into Portuguese.
