The Postgraduate Certificate offers a grounded and experiential understanding of MBCT/MBSR with 18 taught days and supplementary personal study over the course of the academic year. The aim is to develop a detailed understanding of mindfulness, based on both personal practice and knowledge of theory and research.

There is access to a range of learning methods including: personal practice and study (guided reading), lectures, workshops and retreats. There are 5 formative and summative assessments which will include a mixture of reflective diaries, presentations, essays and a proposal for audit/evaluation.
