What do the various levels of MBSR™ certification mean?
In order to be certified by Tracy as an MBSR™Practitioner, each student is trained through a combination of live, interactive seminars and/or in-person workshops, individual instruction, and tested for understanding and proficiency in material.
Starting with level 1, each level of certification builds on the prior skills with increasing complexity and depth regarding emotional + spiritual support. Master Practitioners have the highest level of certification + training.
