MINDFULNESS-BASED CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT (MBCPM™) CURRICULUM
TRAINING INTENSIVE (CTI: 3502 Click Here)
The training involves 21 hours of focused study of the content of the MBCPM™course using the trademarked detailed curriculum, which is available to participants, plus one day in a Silent Meditation Intensive, led by a facilitator rotating through various formal practices and followed by a debrief at end of day. The three modules of the course will be explored, looking through the lens of both chronic pain sufferer and facilitator:
- Building resilience strategies; creating a safe space;
- Developing self-awareness and self-care; the challenges and benefits of Body Scan in this population; and,
- Exploring innate behaviours and relationships with self and others.
The connection to pain is evident as the training unfolds. Key topics and core concepts are explored from the perspective of facilitating a vulnerable, in-pain, and/or chronically stressed group. The languaging of delivery of the teaching and inquiry is noted with some opportunity to practice delivery of formal practices. Trauma-informed (TI) facilitation is emphasized. TI is discerned and discussed at a deeper level during the online Curriculum Implementation and Development: 3503 click here.
