eric supervising meditation training in clinic roomTraining in Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) is available in a two-day seminar / training workshop format.

The next MORE training will be held online via Zoom on December 1-2, 2023.

MORE is an evidence-based, transdiagnostic therapy that unites complementary aspects of mindfulness training, third-wave CBT, and principles from positive psychology into an integrative treatment approach for addiction, stress, and chronic pain. MORE’s therapeutic effects have been demonstrated in eleven clinical trials, and the MORE research program has been supported by more than $60 million in federal research grants from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, and the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.

Participants receive intensive didactic and experiential instruction in implementing specialized mindfulness techniques and other clinical skills integral to Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE). Research evidence on the MORE model will be presented, along with a review of the latest discoveries in neuroscience and basic biobehavioral science about mindfulness, addiction, and chronic pain.

Participants will practice the therapeutic techniques outlined in the MORE treatment manual (Garland, 2013) via clinical role plays. Participants will receive live supervision from Dr. Garland in the delivery of therapeutic techniques via continual, real-time feedback to optimize the delivery of the MORE intervention.

Unique mind-body therapy techniques, advanced cognitive-behavioral skills, and strategies from positive psychology will be presented to address common clinical problems including:

  • Craving and addictive behaviors
  • Physical and emotional pain
  • Catastrophizing and rumination
  • Stress reactivity and anhedonia

At the completion of the training workshop, participants will have a basic level of competency to use the MORE treatment manual to implement MORE for persons suffering from addictive behaviors and chronic pain conditions.

The cost of the training is $600, which includes 13 NASW-approved CEUs (with a 20% discount for graduate students). Register here.

Training in MORE is provided to medical centers, institutions of higher education, community-based treatment providers, academic teaching hospitals, and government agencies. To date, Dr. Garland has provided training in MORE to over 800 clinicians from a range of settings, including…
