Mindfulness-based Peer Coach Training Program (MBPCT) Modules I, II and III
Module I: December 2-4, 2019 in Oregon
Module II: Online, via Zoom and Independent Learning
Module III: TBD Spring 2020 in Oregon
Years in development, the Peer Coach training is a partnership with Pacific University and University of California Los Angeles Mindful Awareness Research Center.
This is a hybrid learning model that includes three distinct training modules. Graduates of all three parts of this training program will be capable of championing mindfulness and resiliency as a preventative approach to health and wellness and as a path toward performance optimization- at work, at home, and in the community.
Peer Coaches can integrate seamlessly into existing leadership and training constructs within a public safety agency- operations, training, administration, etc. Peer Coaches will be able to build mindfulness training models, collaborating with community, regional and national certified trainers to tailor resilience and performance training to meet the unique needs of their organization.
Participants in this training program must complete the following to earn the designation of a Peer Resilience Coach:
Module I: 3-day intensive – mindfulness skill building
Module II: 12-week Distance Learning- study, mentorship and personal practice
Module III: 3-day intensive – mindfulness for performance, movement and mindful nutrition, and coaching skills
Practicum – local project of training/education
Peer Coaches will be required to complete ongoing professional education to maintain affiliation as a Peer Coach.
Pre-requisites for acceptance into this training program:
Two letters of professional reference.
A regular meditation practice for the last year.
A demonstrated life-long learning pathway.
A letter of support/sponsorship by your home agency where you will be coaching.
Additional requirements will be available once the application process opens. Entry into this program requires an an application.
Tuition: Each training module has a fee of $2275 (some early bird discounts may be available), payable with three separate registrations.
** As a reminder: This training is not a Certified Mindfulness Trainer program, but rather a Coach development training. The 4 - 6 month Coach pathway is a sound step toward a much longer journey to become a Certified Mindfulness Trainer. We will offer a certification program for first responders and military members beginning in 2020.
