Welcome to the Mindfulness-based approaches e-handbook. Inside you will find the information to support you when developing and running mindfulness-based courses, as well as resources for participants on an 8 week mindfulness-based course, in particular MBCT.
This handbook is divided in to three areas:
- Information for people with a general interest in, or wanting to refer someone to a course.
- Information for people developing and running courses within the NHS.
- Information for individuals participating in a course.
Each part of this handbook contains resources, contact information, links to relevant documents and podcasts as well as news about upcoming events.
Part 2 and 3 also contain handouts for MBCT and audio recordings.
The resources in part 2 of this handbook should only be used by clinicians who are adhering to the NES Good Practice Guidelines for mindfulness-based approaches. It is important that part 3 of this handbook is used only by people who are currently on the NHSGGC MBCT course, or who have completed it. For these reasons, parts 2 and 3 are password protected. Please ask your course facilitator or your local NHS Mindfulness Lead for the password.
