Information for Those Interested in Becoming an MBCP Instructor
Becoming a Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) Instructor is a process that by its very nature takes patience, commitment, dedication, individual responsibility, creativity and imagination. MBCP teacher training is firmly grounded in the principle that the authenticity and effectiveness of one’s teaching can only come through one’s own personal mindfulness practice. Embodying the practice both inside and outside the classroom is key, and this can only be developed through one’s own personal formal and informal mindfulness practice.
In response to requests for training to become an MBCP Instructor, formal MBCP Teacher Training (MBCPTT) programs have been developed both in the US and abroad. For those who would like to begin preparing to enter a formal MBCP Teacher Training program, a document outlining the essential background is posted below.
