This non-university pathway to becoming a Registered Clinical Mindfulness Teacher exceeds the requirements of the UK Network for Mindfulness-based Teacher Training Organisations (mainly university-based) and uses the joint Universities of Bangor, Oxford and Exeter's Teaching Assessment Criteria (MB-TAC) to ensure your professional recognition.
If you are a clinician - qualified or student - or if you plan to become one, then consider this course.
If you would like to concentrate on using mindfulness to alleviate mental and physical health conditions - including pain, depression, size and weight issues, neuroses, OCD and stress - then this course in Clinical Mindfulness will help you achieve just that.
This course leads to a formal mindfulness teaching qualification recognised by an independent national organisation accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health & Social Care – the UK government funded body that oversees the governing bodies for doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives and most health professionals.
Each student experiences 5-6 Mindfulness Practice Courses, which consist of 8 x 2¼ hour sessions plus a 6 hour ‘All-Day’. The DipCMT also includes 13 days of face-to-face teaching (normally in two to four day residential seminars), 5 tutorials, a teacher-led retreat and individual teaching over 7-14 months depending on whether the student has an established meditation practice or not.
What academic qualifications would I get?
Diploma in Clinical Mindfulness Teaching, credits towards MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice at Bath Spa University and a number of degrees (including BSc Psychology) at Open University.
What professional qualifications would I get?
This diploma, an assessment about your embodiment of Attitudinal Foundations of Mindfulness Practice and a short interview lead to you becoming a Registered Mindfulness Teacher. If you so wish, it can also contribute to you becoming a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. Further study is needed.
With good attendance at seminars, tutorials, Face-to-face teaching and the five required 8+All-Day programmes, a successful student on this cohort could be certified as a Registered Mindfulness Teacher by 31st December, 2015 (earlier with a well-established meditation practice).
This course also counts towards study hours needed to become a UKCP Registered Therapist and gives credit for courses at Bath Spa and Open Universities.
