Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a modified form of cognitive therapy that incorporates mindfulness exercises like meditation and breathing techniques. MBCT therapists use these tools to teach clients how to break free from negative thought patterns that might lead to a depressive funk and help them fight off depression before it takes hold.
MBCT was created to prevent depression relapses in individuals who have recurrent bouts of sadness or unhappiness. It has been shown to be successful in people with severe depressive disorder. Mindfulness-based relapse prevention may also aid in the treatment of generalized anxiety. Some people who suffer from physical health issues, such as vascular disease and traumatic brain injury, have benefited from MBCT’s ability to improve symptoms of depression.
