Course Description: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) was developed by three specialists in treating depression wanted to address the low success rate of treatments. Patients who had suffered one episode of major depression relapsed at a rate of 50% in the first year, with the rate increasing to 70-80% relapse within a year after a third episode. They adapted Kabat-Zinn’s MBSR protocol, originally developed for those suffering from stress-related illness and chronic pain, to fit the needs of those diagnosed with depression, choosing to include strategies from Cognitive Therapy (CT). MBCT is taught as a group intervention that takes the form of a participatory psychoeducation course. The research reviewed in this course shows that for those who have suffered a bout of major depression, attending an MBCT training reduces relapses by 50%.
