Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine

Our Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine teaches more than a dozen practical techniques for self-care and mutual 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 a variety of techniques to reduce stress and enhance self-awareness, mobilize their imagination and intuition, and develop their capacity for self-care. They will, as well, share what they have learned with others and learn from one another in a forum of mutual learning and support.

This program is the first step in becoming certified in Mind-Body Medicine by CMBM.

What will you learn and experience?

  • Experience multiple avenues for self-expression—including sharing, drawings, movement, and emotional expression—and learn to use these creative approaches with others.
  • Learn the latest scientific evidence for these techniques and how they bring positive change to our physiology and psychology.

Is this training online or in person?

Right now, our trainings are offered 100% online. As we plan future programs, we are continuing to evaluate resuming in-person trainings.

I have lots of experience with mind-body medicine. Can I take the Advanced Mind-Body Medicine training right away?

Advanced Training is opened only to those who have completed the initial Mind-Body Medicine Professional Training Program. Sorry—no exceptions!

Can I attend half/part of the program?

No. Because this is a training program, not a conference, we ask for a commitment from you to attend the entire training program, including all didactic and group sessions.

Inside our Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine

Participants share how this training informed and inspired them personally and professionally.

Is ‘life changing’ an overstatement? I think not. This was, hands down, the best professional training I have done in all my years in the field. It was the perfect balance between science, learning, and experiencing.
