M/BMI CUSTOMIZED TRAININGS
In response to a high level of interest among attendees of our Harvard Medical School DCE trainings, the Center for Training in Mind/Body Medicine offers specialty training courses throughout the year.

A hallmark of our center is flexibility. All participants complete a needs assessment questionnaire prior to their training. Program content, duration, and location are then determined to provide a "custom fit" for the client.

Trainings are offered in the following areas:

Cardiac wellness
Cancer
Chronic pain/CFS/Fibromyalgia
Medical symptom reduction
Infertility
Menopause/perimenopause
Mindful Parenting
Healthy Lifestyles
Mindful Parenting
Weight Loss
Stress Management for Students


Formats range from a one-day consultation, to trainings of one to five days, to a multiyear affiliate relationship.

The Center for Training programs combine didactic presentations, case histories, skill development exercises, and small group interactions.

The trainings prepare participants to teach the following, all uniquely integrated into a cohesive whole:

Elicitation of the relaxation response
Appropriate nutrition management
Cognitive/behavioral strategies
Exercise regimens


Participants also receive an extensive Provider's Manual, with essential, detailed information on the M/BMI's clinical practice.

Trainings are conducted by a multi-disciplinary team that includes physicians, psychologists, advanced practice nurses, exercise physiologists, and registered dietitians.

Programs are offered on a scheduled and/or customized basis. Individuals or teams of professionals from a single health care facility can arrange a training at a mutually convenient time, date, and location, either in Boston or at your site.
