Mindfulness Training for Emotional Resilience (MTER) is a brief 4 session program 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. This program teaches the participants to use mindfulness to engage in daily life, regulate difficult emotions and develop a feeling of safety in the body. It also prepares them to participate in longer, more intensive 8-10 week groups, if they so choose. 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. There will be time for in-session practice teaching of exercises and guided meditations.
GOALS: This training initiative will introduce clinicians to mindfulness practices through experiential learning. Participants will have the skills to use the MTER resources to support clients in their setting. This training will provide an opportunity for clinicians to deepen their own mindfulness practice which will serve as a foundation for providing mindfulness based interventions with clients.
