Guidelines pour instruire le protocole MBCT


Consignes pour enseigner le protocole de
Thérapie Cognitive Basée sur la Pleine Conscience
selon Segal, Williams & Teasdale (2012)

"These are normal minimal requirements for teaching MBCT for mood disorders.

  1. An ongoing commitment to a personal mindfulness practice through daily formal and informal practice.
  2. A professional qualification in clinical practice and a mental health training that includes the use of structured, evidence based therapeutic approaches to affective disorders (e.g. Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Behavioral Activation).
  3. Knowledge and experience of the populations that the mindfulness-based approach will be delivered to, including experience of teaching, therapeutic, or other care provision with groups and individuals.
  4. Completion of an in-depth, rigorous mindfulness-based teacher training program or supervised pathway with a minimum duration of 12 months. (A ‘supervised pathway’ might include attending three eight week courses, the first as participant, the second as trainee, the third as co-teacher, as well as attending workshops on theoretical and practical aspects of teaching the core practices and curriculum).
  5. Ongoing adherence to the framework for ethical conduct as outlined within his/her profession.
  6. Engagement in an on-going peer supervision process with an experienced mindfulness-based teacher(s) which includes:
  7. Receiving periodic feedback on teaching from an experienced mindfulness-based teacher through video recordings, supervisor sitting in on teaching sessions or co-teaching and building in feedback sessions.

For the purposes of Continuing Professional Development we recommend:

  1. Participation in periodic residential teacher-led mindfulness meditation retreats.
  2. Ongoing peer supervision with mindfulness-based colleagues, built and maintained as a means to share experiences and learn collaboratively.
  3. Engagement in further training to develop skills and understanding in delivering mindfulness-based approaches, including keeping up to date with the current evidence base for mindfulness-based approaches."
