WorkplaceTM programme

 


What is WorkplaceMT?

WorkplaceMT is an evidence informed approach to teaching mindfulness in the workplace. It’s based on mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), adapted and refined to meet the challenges and demands of the modern day workplace. WorkplaceMT helps employees to develop mindfulness skills over a six week period.

 

Unlike traditional MBSR and MBCT, which are designed for use by therapists and clinicians, WorkplaceMT is designed specifically for the needs of leaders, managers and employees who wish to develop mindfulness. It’s designed to be taught in a standard meeting room without the need for additional equipment or unusual room layouts. WorkplaceMT Trainer training complies with the UK Mindfulness Teacher Training Networks Good Practice Guidelines as far as is practical.

 


What does the Trainer Training Pathway involve?

For some participants, Foundation level Trainer Training may be all they require, as it equips participants with the essential skills required to deliver WorkplaceMT training. To comply with current best practice, Advanced level Trainer Training is recommended.
