This evidence-based, transformational training gives you the science and tools you need to make mind-body medicine an integral, foundational part of your practice and your life. It is the first step in becoming certified by one of the world’s premier programs in comprehensive self-care and group support.
Participants will attend lectures on the latest research in mind-body medicine and experience CMBM’s pioneering Mind-Body Skills Groups. In these groups, they will practice 15 practical, easy to learn techniques to reduce stress and enhance self-awareness, to mobilize their imagination and intuition, and to develop their capacity for self-care. They will, as well, share what they have learned with and learn from one another.
CMBM was founded in 1991 by psychiatrist James S. Gordon M.D., a long-time researcher at the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health, and former Chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy. CMBM’s international faculty of 140 has worked with communities in over a dozen nations as well as here in the United States, training health professionals, educators, community leaders, and youth peer counselors, who in turn integrate the CMBM model into their work with millions of children and adults.
For more than 25 years, CMBM has taught this program to more than 7,000 professionals – clinicians, educators, community leaders, and peer counselors. Over that time, CMBM has developed what is likely the world’s largest, most effective program for healing population-wide stress and trauma. Its work in the Balkans, Israel, Gaza, Haiti, and with Syrian refugees, US veterans, and New York City Fire fighters post 9/11, and in troubled American communities has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and USA Today, and on CBS 60 Minutes.
You are really amazing and we give great thanks to God for the remarkable work you are doing in so many places where God’s children are hurting.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate
