MBRP Scholarship Offered to Honor G. Alan Marlatt

In honor of his life-long and sustaining contributions to the field of clinical psychology and the treatment of substance use disorders, the UCSD Center for Mindfulness is pleased to announce a scholarship program in the name of G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D.

As a pioneer in his field and one of the developers of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP), Dr. Marlatt had a keen and longstanding interest in fostering the careers and aspirations of professionals (and future professionals) seeking to work in the area of relapse prevention in substance use disorders. In keeping with his interest, the UCSD Center for Mindfulness has established two $500 scholarships toward attendance at the upcoming MBRP 5-Day Professional Training in Rochester, New York, September 11-16, 2011.

The scholarships are available to anyone wishing to attend the training who may face some financial hardship that may prevent them from attending. A brief essay is all that is required to apply for the funding, and the submission deadline is July 11, 2011. For more detailed information, see the UCSD CFM Professional Training website. Please feel free to circulate this information to students, colleagues and other interested professionals.
