Mindfulness Behavioral Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)


Mindfulness Behavioral Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Mindfulness Behavioral Cognitive Therapy. "MBCT was developed for people with recurring episodes of depression or unhappiness, to prevent relapse. It has been proven effective in patients with major depressive disorder who have experienced at least three episodes of depression. Mindfulness-based relapse prevention may also be helpful for treating generalized anxiety disorders and addictions. MBCT has also been shown to improve symptoms of depression in some people with physical health conditions, such as vascular disease and traumatic brain injury. There are many approaches to the use of this form of meditation in therapy." Excerpted from this website https://www.psychologytoday.com/therapy-types/mindfulness-based-cognitive-therapy.
