The Workplace Mindfulness Training (WorkplaceMT) approach has been researched and refined over a four year period by The Mindfulness Exchange (TME), and is based on mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT). TME was set up as a spin off from Oxford University’s, Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC) to provide mindfulness training for the workplace based on scientific understanding and best practice developed in clinical research and mindfulness teaching. TME are leaders in the field of adapting scientifically validated mindfulness teaching, into training formats designed for the workplace.

Best­selling self-help book TME uses the best­selling self­help book, Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Professor Mark Williams, Founder Director of the OMC, and Dr Danny Penman as the basis to develop WorkplaceMT. This readable book is based on up-to-date scientific understanding of mindfulness and includes a programme of short but powerful mindfulness exercises that anyone can fit into a busy day. This book is often provided to course participants as a course handbook. De Nederlandse versie kun je hier vinden.

In 2016 Juliet Adams and Marina Grazier's book 'Mindful Leadership for Dummies' was published. It includes 6 Chapters on WorkplaceMT - one per week, and full guidance on all the formal and informal mindfulness practice activities. This book may suppliment your learning during the course and inform your teaching approach thereafter.
