Mindfulness-integrated CBT Masterclasses


Despite the efficacy of Mindfulness-integrated CBT as a transdiagnostic approach to treating a wide range of mental health conditions, it is inevitably complex and clinicians need as much assistance and training as possible to improve its use, especially with high comorbidity and complex or reluctant clients. 

The aim of the masterclass series is to assist therapists already trained in MiCBT to deepen their skills and make the most out of the MiCBT approach. You will learn useful strategies that can make a marked difference in your therapy outcomes. It will offer the space to discuss problems you commonly or occasionally encounter in your clinical work and will provide tools to address them. 

Our masterclasses are specifically designed to assist mental health professionals who have already undertaken at least basic training in MiCBT and implemented MiCBT with their clients under supervision through the Applied Course. It will be an opportunity to learn directly from Dr Bruno Cayoun, the principal developer of MiCBT. 

Teaching Approach 

Masterclasses last 2 hours and are offered online only. A masterclass is a live presentation where you watch the trainer discuss a specific topic and answer and discuss related questions in real time. Although you are invited to send questions that you may have related to the masterclass topic, it is not a requirement for you do so in order to attend. To prevent distractions and maximise the focus on the masterclass theme, only topics related to the masterclass theme will be discussed. For example, if the theme is “improving interoceptive exposure while in crisis”, queries about how to use the Socratic dialogue will be addressed in relation to this theme only. 

To ascertain a timely, focused and content-efficient delivery, masterclasses do not offer online interactions during the event, so you are very much encouraged to send any related questions you may have, via the dedicated online form following your registration. Please note that questions are read anonymously and there will be no way for the participants to know who asked the questions. 

Masterclasses are segmented into two parts. In the first (longer) part, the trainer discusses the chosen theme in some detail.  In the second (shorter) part, the trainer will answer questions previously submitted. 

Masterclasses are conducted online using Zoom.  This is accessed through your internet browser and you do not need to purchase any software - all you need is a computer with good internet connection, a headset with microphone and a webcam. Information on accessing the masterclass with Zoom is available after registration.


Participants must have successfully completed the MiCBT Foundation Course.

I really valued the precision and well paced nature of Bruno's presentation. His case examples powerfully illustrated how our childhood issues can be transferred onto our contemporary reactions to current dilemmas and sub-conscious reactions to the therapist. And as much, can influence the therapist's own past issues being counter transferred back to our reactions to client situations. Bruno's presentation explained how MiCBT skills can re-train those childhood-based reactions into more considered equanimous responses.

Excellent class, skilfully presented by Dr Bruno, who thoughtfully integrates ancient and new knowledge applied to self development and psychological practice. By applying evidence base along with historical writings and spiritual insights, the class has deep resonance and application.

Co-emergence is such an important element of the MiCBT model that I think everyone involved in this modality should attend this Masterclass at least once every year!
