A Conversation for Overcoming Depression

Mindfulness-based Cogntive Therapy

Post 1



Just to let you know a bit more about the Mindfulness programme that has been developed here in the UK. MBCT has been developed from Jon Kabat-Zinn's MBSR programme over in the states. MBCT is specifically for people who are depressed and those that have been suffering from depression over a long period of time.

For more information take a look at the MBCT website at http://www.mbct.co.uk. The developers of the programme are academics rather than self-help "gurus" (which personally I find more reassuring!), and so far have been developing the programme for therapists to help treat their patients rather than to deal directly with ordinary joes! But I hear there is a new book in the works which has been written for the sufferers of depression themselves rather than therapists.

Hope people will find this info useful!
