PSY71020 - Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression

(3 units)
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an empirically supported eight-week intervention for the treatment of chronic depression and the prevention of depression relapse. Research on MBCT has found significantly reduced relapse rates for people with a history of depression that have participated in the program. Mindfulness based practices have demonstrated impressive scientific efficacy and are increasingly becoming integrated into professional practice (e.g., mental health, medical care, education, business, law). Training is needed as mental health students and professionals are increasingly called upon to deliver mindfulness approaches. Students who complete the course will be prepared to deliver the course.
