Mindfulness Training for Emotional Resilience
In this 2 day, experiential training, participants will learn how to teach mindfulness for mental health and follow the MTER curriculum. A certificate of completion will be provided.
MTER is a trauma informed course that teaches introductory mindfulness and emotion regulation skills to people struggling with mental health challenges with an emphasis on psycho-education and brief meditation practices. Participants learn to use mindfulness to engage in daily life, regulate difficult emotions and develop a feeling of safety in the body. Concepts from sensorimotor psychotherapy such as the window of tolerance and basics of neuroscience are taught within the program to help participants understand the importance of modulating arousal in order to stay well. This 2-day training will emphasize experiential learning by leading participants through the 4-week MTER curriculum followed by group discussion on the experience.
