Psychologist and mindfulness expert Dr. Richard Sears is now offering online training! The mindfulness courses below are based on the well-researched protocols of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction by Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy by Zindel Segal and colleagues. Please note that these are educational courses only, and while they are designed to develop important skills for dealing with stress and other significant life challenges, they are not intended to serve as psychotherapy.
Since you have full access to the entire course, you can watch the video of each session as many times as you like. For those who want to develop mastery of the material, you can take yourself through the entire program several times, and print out a graduation certificate each time to document your experience.
Watch the video clip below for a sample from the Introduction session:
