The Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) program is a 12-week seminar designed to be held once per week . The Mindful Ecotherapy Center has been training therapists and counselors to facilitate this program since 2015. We maintain a directory of certified MBE facilitators who are graduates of the training and certification program. Professional counselors and therapists have found these skills to be a welcomed asset to their practices, and participants who have attended the program have reported increased self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-efficacy. Participants also report increased coping skills for depression, anxiety, and trauma.
