If you are a mental health professional interested in earning up to 25 FREE continuing education hours in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy here’s your opportunity!
In July and August of 2017 the Mindful Ecotherapy Center will be hosting a series of four seminars on Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy. We currently have 6 openings for volunteer assistants to help out with the seminars. Volunteers will have light duties like distributing handouts, assisting with activities, and otherwise assisting the facilitator. All volunteers receive free continuing education credit for any seminars in which they assist, as well as a free copy of the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Workbook.
Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) is a blending of Mindfulness and Ecopsychology.
MBE is used as a framework for helping individuals and families to find deeper connections in their own lives, and to give more meaning and enjoyment to the activities of daily living. By re-integrating ourselves with nature, we are able to tap into nature’s healing power and to heal the earth as we heal ourselves.
The Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Workbook and the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Workshop series were developed by Charlton Hall, LMFT/S, RPT-S, CHt as a 12-week program to help individuals re-connect with the healing power of nature. This four-part training for Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy for mental health professionals teaches you all the basic skills you need to facilitate the 12-session Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) workshops. It is the central component of the MBE Facilitator Training Program for certification in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy.
