Advanced Certification

The Advanced Certification is a way of assessing competency in teaching and best practices in MBCT and/or MBSR. This process uses a combination of face-to-face and at-a-distance supervision, discussion, feedback and assessment using specific criteria based on standards set by the international community. It is intended for graduates of the MBCT/MBSR Certificate Program who wish to apply their facilitation skills and receive individualized supervision from one of The Centre’s expert facilitators.
