Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an intervention designed for individuals with a history of depression. It is one of the most widely used and researched mindfulness-based approaches. MBCT combines the concepts of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with principles of mindfulness to help prevent relapse from recurrent episodes of depression. The approach teaches how to find a new way of relating to thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. Clinical research has demonstrated MBCT to be as effective as antidepressants in reducing relapse of depression. MBCT is an eight-week program that meets for two hours a week, with about one hour of home practice daily. It requires a lot of commitment, but is very rewarding!
