Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based group treatment to help prevent depressive relapse. It is a group-oriented intervention designed to help people who have suffered from depression and/or anxiety, and are not currently experiencing acute symptoms. MBCT combines cognitive therapy with meditative practices based on the cultivation of mindfulness. The primary element of this group is to become acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize depression and anxiety. Participants will cultivate a mindfulness practice meant to help them become aware of their “relapse signature,” develop a new relationship to their symptoms, as well as skills to stay well.
