Our Online Advanced Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine is the second step in the most complete experiential and didactic training in mind-body medicine available — anywhere. It is also the next step as we continue our commitment to working with you on your professional growth and development. This training teaches participants how to use CMBM’s mind-body medicine techniques with individuals, families, and in classrooms. Participants will also learn CMBM’s signature “Mind-Body Skills Groups,” complete with a detailed manual describing each session and discussing solutions to common issues that arise in groups.
