The Frankel Psychotherapy Training Initiative of the University of Michigan Depression Center will be offering a training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) of depression, May 13-18. MBCT is a therapeutic form of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) developed for people with depression. MBSR was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Univ. Massachusetts and is based on his experience as Zen and Vipassana meditator and yoga experience. The MBCT training will be taught by Susan Woods, ACSW, who has taught this course with Zindel Segal (one of its developers) many times and Claire Weiner, ACSW, who has considerable experience teaching MBCT.

If you are a psychotherapist with a regular daily meditation practice, you qualify for this training. It is the first time the training has been offered in the Midwest.

The website link provides more information about the training, the trainers, and the application process. The training is a residential and will be held at the Weber Retreat Center in Adrian, Michigan.

Let me know if you have any questions that are not answered by the flyer or the website.
