The Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC has been providing continuing education in mindfulness and ecotherapy since 2007. During all of that time, students of Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy have continually expressed a desire for an organization that specifically caters to the educational needs of counselors and therapists who practice Mindful Ecotherapy.
With these needs in mind, the Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC is exploring the possibility of creating a new organization. This educational institution would tentatively be called the Mindful Ecotherapy Organization, and would train and certify counselors and therapists specifically in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy. This would be an intensive two-year certification process, including up-to-date training in the latest techniques, research, and education in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy.
Such a certification would require renewal every two to three years, and would have a continuing education requirement during each renewal period, so that MBE practitioners are up-to-date on the latest techniques and interventions. It would also require case presentations and supervision for certification.
This would be a different and much more intensive certification than our current Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification training. Trainees who complete the two-year training would be certified Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapists (MBE). The Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC is now opening a dialog with interested parties who would like to potentially serve on the MBE Certification Board or otherwise help in making this long-awaited vision a reality.
