We are thrilled to present the Professional Training Program graduating class of 2011.  An exciting mix of health care professionals coming from across the Ottawa-Valley community.  Our newest teacher/facilitators of Mindfulness-Based Interventions are psychologists, social workers, clinical counsellors, coaches, addictions counsellors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.  They committed to participating in the 8-week program as participant-observers, a process that challenged their paradigm of health care delivery and enhanced their already-well developed compassion for the suffering of their clients.  Following the 8-week program, they participated in this two and one-half day retreat to acquire a very necessary understanding of the theory and practice of Mindfulness-Based Interventions.

This program also introduced training in trauma resilience and we are excited about the many directions our new teacher/facilitators will be taking these skills.

Congratulations and thank you for your dedication!
