Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

What is Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy?

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight-week program, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Research shows that MBSR is effective for individuals with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic. MBCT is what Don Burroughs calls traditional Cognitive-Behavior Therapy with an Eastern twist. It not only helps with the content of your thinking but the process as well.
