Course Description

This two-day experiential workshop will provide participants with an understanding of how mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) was developed as an adaptation of mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) to treat the relapse prevention of depression. MBCT has now evolved to be found effective with other related disorders including anxiety as a co-occurring disorder. 

This will be an experiential workshop focused on building or enhancing a daily mindfulness practice as a core skill of MBCT. As such, participants will be expected to engage in some meditation practices as part of the workshop. Comfortable and flexible clothing is recommended.

The learning goals of this workshop are:

  • An introduction to the mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) program model, its background, theory and structure.
  • To be introduced and led through key practices within the model.
  • Opportunities for dyad teaching practice.
  • To discuss the application in different work settings.
