Train the Trainer MBAR

Train the trainer of MBAR was developed by Dr Valerie Mason-John M.A. (hon.doc) and Dr Paramabandhu Groves Phd.

Who is the Training for?

The training is for experienced meditation practitioners, people with an understanding of mindfulness, and health care providers working in the field of addiction. Preferably people who have completed an 8 week recognized Mindfulness course. Group skills and teaching skills are also preferred but not an absolute requirement.

Outcomes of the Training

  • Understand the MBAR course and be able to co-facilitate a course in your institution as part of your work practice or at your local Buddhist centre.
  • Understand the nature of addiction and compulsive behaviours and how it relates to your own life.
  • Understanding of meditation and mindfulness in relation to addiction.
  • Identify your existing skills in working effectively with mindfulness for addictions and compulsive behaviours and increase your confidence in applying them.

I do offer one day professional training for people working in the field of addiction.
