MINDFULNESS-BASED COGNITIVE THERAPY
8-week Live Online Course
Next Class: Fall 2023
Have you struggled with stress, anxiety, or depression? Do you spend a lot of time worrying? Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a research-supported course that can help prevent recurrent depression and improve anxiety and stress. If you find yourself frequently getting lost in your head or overthinking, MBCT can be particularly beneficial. Using various mindfulness practices, participants in the MBCT program will learn skills for working with difficult emotions and gain more freedom from downward spirals of negative thinking that can perpetuate depression, anxiety and stress. Additionally, practices taught in the course can help generate greater self-acceptance, self-kindness, and resilience.
In this program, you will learn to:
Become more aware of thoughts, feelings, and body sensations, and how they interact to keep us stuck feeling depressed or anxious
Recognize triggers for low mood and disengage from negative spirals of thinking
Increase your ability to work with difficult emotions and experiences
Become more present in your life as it is unfolding, instead of being on autopilot lost in the past or worrying about the future
Increase self-kindness and acceptance
This course is designed for individuals who have had low mood or depression in the past or currently have mild to moderate anxiety or depression.
No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation is necessary.
Research demonstrates that MBCT is as effective as antidepressant medication in reducing recurrent depression: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/apr/21/mindfulness-based-cognitive-therapy-treatment-chronic-depression-antidepressants
