Running a Successful Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Group is an online continuing education course in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy. This course is part of the educational requirements to become a certified Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Group Facilitator. You may take this course individually, or as part of the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification Package.

Most of the educational material in this course is reproduced in the Facilitator Manual for the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Program. The Facilitator Manual contains the complete text from the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Workbook, plus tips, suggestions and instructions for facilitating the 12-Week Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Program.  A pdf copy of the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Manual is included in the course documents for this course in the Course Documents lesson.

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.

About Facilitator Certification in Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy

This introductory Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy in Clinical Practice course is one of the five courses required for certification as a Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator. It is also a stand-alone course that may be taken independently of the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification.

The individual courses required for Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification have NBCC approval but the certification itself cannot be legally regulated by the NBCC because they govern continuing education and not facilitator certification. Facilitator certification is regulated by the Mindful Ecotherapy Center. What this means is that the individual course work you do towards certification as a Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) Facilitator will be approved for NBCC credit, but the actual certification itself will not, since that certification is outside of the jurisdiction of NBCC. Questions about certification in MBE should be addressed to the Mindful Ecotherapy Center.

Here is the new process for becoming a Certified Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator, effective June 1, 2020.

There are five courses that you must complete before applying for facilitator certification. These are:

TOTAL HOURS = 37

You may take the courses in any order you wish. All courses must be completed successfully prior to applying for certified facilitator status. Once you have completed all five courses, you will need to write a case presentation using the guidelines found here.
