Training

The Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) is the world’s largest, most effective program for healing population-wide psychological trauma. Our trainings teach evidence-based self-care techniques for reducing stress, enhancing wellbeing, and building resiliency.

The CMBM model trains local service providers and community leaders to teach simple stress-relief and resilience-building skills in the context of small, supportive groups. We do this because when stress is chronic or overwhelming, it disrupts every physiological function and contributes in significant ways to every major psychological and physical disorder (including heart disease, immune disorders and pain syndromes, as well as depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, alcoholism and drug addiction).

Learn the science and practice of evidence-based mind-body techniques for self-care in the our Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine. Then, in our Advanced Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine, learn how to use these techniques with all those whom you serve. Get the details on our intensive, multi-day training programs.
