About the Training
Please note this training is open only to those who completed out Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine. Sorry – no exceptions!
Our Online Advanced Mind-body Medicine Training Program 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.
After completing the Online Advanced Mind-Body Medicine, participants can start supervision or the Certification process to further enhance their skills as they integrate our model into their work and their lives.
“The Advanced training helped me to identify the path by which I’ll bring this healing work to my community and to myself. This program has changed my life and given me a means to give that change to others.”
