MCT Course Participation Agreement
I will respect the privacy of all participants. I will not reveal the specifics of other participants’ experiences or statements during the courses to anyone in any form.
I agree that the MCT trainings do not provide psychotherapy, counseling, psychoanalysis, psychology or medical services. I agree to not use the MCT as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or medical care.
If I represent my certification in a print or online format, I will refer readers to the following link for more information: www.dallasyogacenter.com/mctcertification
I understand that the MCT certification does not in anyway endorse those who are certified. It represents successful completion of the training.
I agree that DYC owns all of the training materials and I will not teach the MCT curriculum in any form unless given written permission by DYC.
I agree that participation in the MCT does not automatically guarantee graduation, attainment of certification, or receiving the MCT Certificate. Successful completion of MCT certification relies on the MCT staff, at their sole discretion, determining that I have completed all of the requirements of the training. No refunds will be given in the event that I do not receive a certification.
I agree that I will not express any endorsement by or affiliation with DYC unless given written permission by DYC.
I will not distribute the MCT course materials to anyone unless those materials are specifically marked by DYC to be shared with others.
I will keep all content of the MCT courses confidential and will not record video or audio of the content, teaching materials, lectures, sessions, or any other content or teachings during the MCT courses.

If I am a mental health professional, I agree that the decision to bring mindfulness into a clinical setting can only be made based solely on my own professional determination of its application and safety on a case-by-case basis. Dallas Yoga Center, the MCT, Kay Colbert, and all MCT trainers make no recommendations related to whether or not mindfulness should or shouldn’t be used in your specific role as a mental health professional. DYC, Kay Colbert and all MCT trainers accept no liability or responsibility for your work with clients or others using mindfulness.
If you are taking the CE portion of the program and you are not a mental health professional, you agree that in no way is the information being shared with you meant to license or accredit you in being able to offer mental health or medical services. Likewise, the CE portion of the training in no way trains you to offer mental health or medical services to others.
