MINDFULNESS BASED COGNITIVE THERAPY

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to help with stress, depression and chronic unhappiness. It was originally developed to prevent Major Depressive Disorder relapse and has been adapted and used to treat children, addictions, pregnant women at risk for depression, hypochondriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, tinnitus, auditory hallucinations, insomnia, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. Below is a video of one of the original developers of MBCT, Dr. Zindel Segal, describing the original program.
