Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is
designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of
depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the
ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices
and attitudes based on the cultivation of
mindfulness. The heart of this work lies in becoming
acquainted with the modes of mind that often
characterize mood disorders while simultaneously
learning to develop a new relationship to them. MBCT
was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and
John Teasdale, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program.
