mindfulness-based CBT

  • Question
  • Updated 6 years ago
. I want to teach mindfulness to people as a pain relief method, and to help with low self worth and self harm, but when I read from the teachers notes, I am horrified at: - I quote from assignment 28:(under "couple and family work) you may experience a number of models including the following:
typical hetrosexual married couple, married couple who are about to seperate, couple that has seperated, couple with children, gay, bisexual or lesbain couples, unconventional couples where there are actually three or more other romantic/sexual partners involved that are not officaily of the relationship, in other words, an affair; single parents with children in the group, children who have no parent or contact with parents, e.g. in care. "Single" person who is the affair" in the above cases, .. it goes on and on then adds, if you cannot offer acceptance, then you are the wrong therapist for the case??!! Wise words of advice?? is this a good standard to reach,after 28 assignments?

Are you doing the CBT or the Mindfulness-based cognitive behaviour therapy advanced diploma level 5? I think I should have done the CBT on its own, as a lot of people seem to be doing that, and it may be more up to date. My moan is that of course we know there are all differant types of rekationship, or we ought to if we are taking this typoe of course, for that type of price. It seems that this type of tuition is likely to be more suitable for a 10-12 year old sex education class.

Pleased to meet you by the way, I have just been to an art group so I feel contented about that at least, perhaps I had better contact the college direct about it instead of complaining this way, however It is nice of you to reply.

I have spoken to the college and they have agreed to look at all the assignments I have done so far, with all the questions and tutorial that I have felt is not up to scratch, hoping for a good outcome, so I can recommend the course to others.

Thank you, I am hoping to be full of praise soon, I certainly did not find the staff at Stonebridge rude, I am pleased to say. Good luck with the course.

How are you doing now? I have done assignments (submitted 1,2,3, passed) 4,5, 12, 15 finished but not submitted as I think the questions dart about too much, so I am going to do the lot then submit them all. I feel it is much better to study from a variety of books, CBT, psychology and counselling, plus healing, there is just not enough stuff in the tutorial, it was driving me mad before I started to do this. I can now say that I have learnt tons, enough to want to study psychology full time, so that is good!

BevF "if you cannot offer acceptance, then you are the wrong therapist for the case" absolutely spot on actually - what they are pointing out here, is that if you have a problem with a client's sexuality, sexual preferences etc etc, then you will need to refer, as you would not be able to work with them due to your own judgements getting in the way of effective therapy. Referral references would not be out of place anywhere in the course, whether it be in assignment 1, or the final one. BTW the examples they used are all common place in the therapy room! In fact they are quite 'tame'. Hope that helps with your question. (Just in case you were wondering - I am a clinical psychotherapist of 13 years).

Pleased to read your reply, I am considering study on a full time 3 year basis, counselling psychology or similar, I am on a return to learn to brush up on English, maths IT and business at present, but I am interested in Sterling university as it has more accommodation. It also seems to offer more flexible options, Torbay has terrible substandard overpriced accommodation, I have had to suffer damp, freezing, cramped, rented flats from hell, I have had the roof leaking over my books and inhaled fumes from a faulty boiler - plus a person who kept rabbits running around in her flat next door! So distance learning has been difficult it such conditions. Do you have any advice for me as regards what I should be considering in my choice of study? I am reading applied psychology by Hugh Coolican to give me more idea's.

Anyone taking the Mindfulness CBT Advanced Diploma Course online?.


Hi just joined this diploma course today from Ireland online and wondered if there were other students online that are interested in saying hi! Just so we can share ideas and questions etc. Thanks Yvonne

I never found too many others on this course whilst I've been working my way through it – only just found this thread today as I've submitted my final assignment. Fingers crossed and you can chat things through with others as and when you need to. Good luck Yvonne, hope you enjoy the course.

I've just finished this course and agree with Dena Marshall's reply. I wasn't sure why the OP has completed 1-5 and then done modules 12 and 15 whilst commenting that the questions dart about too much.?? I've always found it beneficial to go through the course sequentially and submit my answers before starting the next module. We all work differently though and need to find a way to get through home study when it's so easy to become distracted. Good luck to all those still going through the coursework!
