Mindfulness Based Therapist Certification
The MBAT Training Level Overview


TMAATT is dedicated to:

  • Ensuring that each MBAT candidate is taught by experienced licensed clinical instructors who are trained in mindfulness, trauma, and addiction.

  • Ensuring that each class size is small in order to create the ideal atmosphere for learning, growth, and trust. Our MBAT clinicians make life long friends and colleagues from all around the world as they move through each training level.    

  • Ensuring that our MBAT supervisors work closely with each MBAT clinician to help them implement the mindfulness tools in their own clinical practice. We want our MBATs to confidently apply what they are learning with the clients they work with. 

  • Ensuring that we support each MBATs growth and interest in applying mindfulness in their personal lives as they wish.

  • Ensuring that we provide a community that fosters collaboration, support and kindness so that every candidate feels connected not only during the training, but long after you have completed the MBAT certification.
