Resource: The MIndful Trainer: thoughts on bringing brief mindful moments into MI trainings


The thoughts and ideas contained in this MIndful Trainer resource were gathered from MINT Members during a workshop facilitated by Jesse Berg at the 2016 Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) Forum entitled, “The MIndful Trainer.” Approximately 100 MINT members participated in this workshop. Of these participants, about 40% reported having a regular mindfulness practice of their own. The first half of the workshop was a brief overview of a variety of ways that “mindfulness” has been approached in “third wave therapies” and other contexts. During the second half of the hour-long workshop, participants formed small groups to discuss “the how, what, and why of incorporating mindfulness into MI training.” This publication is the organized and edited results of those discussions.
