Learn How To Tame Depression & Anxiety
Get the tools you need in a Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy group
Wednesday 5:30-7:15pm group begins September 26, 2018 (runs for 8 weeks)
In a Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) group, you’ll learn how to apply mindfulness – a relaxed attentiveness to one’s experience in the present moment – to painful thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations associated with depression, anxiety, and other forms of psychological distress. By practicing mindfulness skills in the group and at home, you’ll begin to relate to these experiences with acceptance and ease instead of habitual, self-defeating defenses. In the process, you’ll also discover that you can often prevent them from spiraling into more severe depression and anxiety.
Based on a groundbreaking program that has been clinically proven to bolster recovery from depression and prevent relapse (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression by Segal, Williams & Teasdale, Guilford Press, 2013), this group is highly experiential, offering participants a set of tools and exercises they can take home with them and integrate into their daily lives. In fact, weekly homework assignments are an essential component of the program.
The group meets on Wednesday evening from 5:30-7:15pm. There are generally two sessions per year, fall and spring. For more information, please visit www.MBCTBoston.com. Or contact Tom Pedulla, LICSW at 617-803-0951.
