In this training workshop you will learn the 5-session Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with mindfulness (CBTm) class content, developed in partnership by a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health clinicians, and participants. At the end of the training, the CBTm Hub Team will provide mentorship to allow you to feel prepared to use the class content in your role with your patients/clients. The training may also provide you with helpful skills for your own life.
What is CBTm?
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Mindfulness (CBTm) is a skill-based educational program designed to help build resilience and improve mental wellbeing through evidence-based self-management strategies.
- The development of this program began in 2016 with a Manitoba Patient Access Network Grant, with the goal of improving timely access to evidence-informed mental health care.
Why should I participate in this training?
- To learn about the development of the CBTm program from the CBTm Hub Team
- To learn key cognitive and behavioural concepts, and how to apply them with your clients/patients.
- To learn about good quality resources and gain access to CBTm materials (i.e., PowerPoint slides and handouts) to deliver the program in group settings or on an individual-basis with your clients
