Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based treatment for depression and anxiety. it is designed to prevent relapse and reoccurrence by giving people a set of mindfulness and cognitive skills to manage their mental health.
This course is designed for mental health professionals (therapists, counsellors, practitioners) looking to use MBCT skills with clients, individuals looking to use MBCT to improve their own wellbeing, and psychology students looking to explore new psychotherapies.
MBCT is a theoretical integration of mindfulness and cognitive therapy but is a standalone treatment so you do not need a background in either mindfulness or cognitive therapy to join this course as everything will be explained from the fundamentals.
This course will take you step-by-step through the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy programme as we learn to:
Develop greater awareness and switch off autopilot
Connect with our experiences
Bring greater focus and attentional control
Find new ways to deal with uncomfortable experiences
Build an action plan for better mental health
Apply MBCT to a range of mental health conditions
We will explore both the theoretical and practical sides of MBCT, looking at how and why it works and diving into MBCT techniques with a series of practice exercises that will help you develop your personal mindfulness practice and see how it works in the real world. We’ll learn through videos, articles, quizzes, downloads and activities.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy was originally developed for depression, but now has a strong evidence base for treating anxiety, and research continues to expand into other mental health conditions such as OCD and addiction, all of which will be discussed in this course.
On completing the course, you will earn a certificate accredited by the International Association of Therapists.
