Mindfulness in Recovery®
Given our current situation with the outbreak of COVID-19 and the increased demand for MIR trainings, we are now offering the MIR Integration training online. This is a 14-hour training offered over a two-week period with direct supervision and interaction with our co-founder, John Bruna.
Mindfulness in Recovery® (MIR) is a skills-based, accessible and comprehensive mindfulness program designed specifically for recovery. It supports all recovery pathways using an individualized, mindfulness curriculum that empowers your clients to integrate MIR with their personal values, cultural background, and spiritual beliefs. Using the language of recovery in the curriculum to build connections to recovery communities and literature, the MIR skills can be integrated seamlessly with your other evidenced-based treatment modalities (CBT, MI, DBT, 12 Step) providing clients with the skills to put the therapeutic tools you are offering them into practice.
Many mindfulness programs focus on learning mindfulness techniques and exercises that can offer clients tools to become more present, reducing stress and reactivity, and increase their ability to make healthier life choices. However, all too often, even with the best programs and trained professionals, these tools are not integrated into an ongoing lifestyle that will support the ongoing practice required to develop long-term traits that support their recovery. They become a set of tools that fall by the wayside, only to be picked up in times of duress, if at all.
MIR focuses on developing mindfulness skills that can be incorporated into daily life that practical, universal, and based on the recovery lifestyle. In this way, clients develop a way of living mindfully, with skills that support their recovery, based on their personal values and belief system.
