Event Description

Learn to manage anxiety & prevent the relapse of depression

What is MBCT?
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based group therapy for preventing depressive relapse. It also reduces acute depression, anxiety and stress.

Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is designed to bring awareness to the habitual negative thinking that leads to depressive and anxious spirals. Combined, MBCT interrupts how we habitually react to situations, so we can choose to respond in more skillful ways.

Research has demonstrated MBCT is as effective as antidepressants in the prevention of depressive relapse or recurrence. (Kuyken, 2015)

Participants Will Learn
A variety of practices to manage depression, anxiety and prevent relapse. By learning to identify the triggers and symptoms of anxiety and depression, participants can effectively address these issues as they arise in everyday life.

Who Should Attend
Individuals experiencing moderate anxiety or depression and people with a history of depression. See guidelines on whether MBCT or MBSR is right for you.

A commitment to attendance and home practice activities is required. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the day-long silent retreat. If you are not able to attend the scheduled Session 4, or if you would have to miss more than two sessions in total, we recommend that you register for an MBCT program starting on a different date. And please note that, in order to receive an insurance receipt, you must attend a minimum of six sessions.

Facilitator(s): Karen Sutherland MSW RSW & Evelyn Tan MA SLP
