What is this course about?

The two-year, part-time MSc in Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBI) is a highly interactive and experiential course developed for practitioners who wish to train as teachers of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT*) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). You will combine studying the theory, research, and clinical applications of MBIs with the development of your own personal mindfulness meditation practice and participation in intensive residential training retreats. On successful completion of the programme, you will be qualified to teach an 8-week MBCT/MBSR course.

*Anyone wishing to deliver MBCT to clinical populations will need an appropriate professional clinical training and to follow the good practice guidelines of their own professional body, in addition to those of the Mindfulness Teachers Network of Ireland.
