MBCT Group

What is Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) group?

MBCT was originally developed by Drs. Mark Williams, John Teasdale and Zindal Segal to help prevent depression relapse among patients with recurrent depression. Recent years saw its spread to non-clinical settings, serving all people who are interested in cultivating a sense of peace and clarity. This group will be psychoeducational in nature. It will be skills-based and will require a strong commitment to skills learning as well as regular mindfulness practices.

Objectives:

-To increase the awareness of one’s experiences and the capacity for staying with one’s experiences

-To improve quality of life through facilitating activities that are nourishing and decreasing activities that are depleting

-To develop mindfulness-based skills on stress management, depression management, and anxiety reduction
