Atlanta Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT is an empirically validated treatment intervention specifically designed to help the prevention of unipolar depression. At AMI we teach an 8-week MBCT course that combines the tools of cognitive behavioral therapy with mindfulness-based interventions. Participants in the course are introduced to thought patterns and feeling states that typically characterize mood disorders. They are helped to create new relationships to their thoughts, moods, and physical sensations and this can lead to greater equanimity, acceptance, openness, and healthier relationships with others. This particular course is being used by many of the European National Health Care Services as their primary intervention for recurrent depression. Our MBCT courses typically meet in the mornings during the week and enrollment is held to a maximum of 10 people per course.

Supervision

Supervision and consultation are offered to mental health professionals by Drs. Vantine and Swann. This service is provided on an individual basis as well as through group process.

There are two supervision groups that run throughout the year.
1. Dr. Swann leads a supervision group on mindfulness and neurobiology. This group is open to clinicians across the spectrum of experience and it is not necessary to have taken an MBSR course or to currently have a daily mindfulness meditation practice.

2. Dr. Vantine leads a group from advanced practitioners. This group is open to mental health clinicians who have either already participated in an 8-week MBSR class and/or have a daily mindfulness mediation practice and are interested in increasing their skill on infusing mindfulness into their psychotherapy practices.

** The mindfulness and neurobiology supervision group includes the study of neuroscience and specifically Interpersonal Neurobiology as conceptualized by Dr. Daniel Siegel. Both groups are limited to 8 people.

Custom MBSR Courses: Weekend Intensive

AMI understands that there are many communities without a certified MBSR instructor nearby. For you, we offer the standard 8-week MBSR course in an intensive 2 weekend format. You provide the location and standard services for your participants and we will provide the MBSR training. Typically we highly suggest separating the 2 intensive weekends by a 2 week period. This intervening 2 week period allows participants to go home, participate in the daily mindfulness and meditation homework that accompanies MBSR prior to completing the course. During this 2 week period, AMI instructors work through the use of technology to provide ongoing support to the participants.
