MINDFULNESS-BASED cognitive therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based program proven to lessen the effect of stress and prevent the relapse of depression and anxiety.
It is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. MBCT, which combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness, was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program.
MBCT is a two-hour, oncea-week, eight-week program. This program may be availed in the office of FriendlyCare Foundation at 711 Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong.
