Workshop

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Aug 13 - Aug 18 2017 Rhinebeck, NY

This workshop is by application only. Please submit your materials according to the directions on this page.

Learn Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in this professional training with Zindel Segal and Susan Woods.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an innovative group program designed to prevent relapse in people who have recovered from unipolar depression. Based on the research of Drs. Zindel Segal, John Teasdale, and Mark Williams, and documented in their book Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, this professional training combines the practice and clinical application of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy.

Through role-playing, and simulated classroom and patient-practitioner encounters, we learn to apply mindfulness practices in teaching MBCT to clients. Throughout the week, we explore the importance of the clinician’s own meditation practice and self-inquiry, especially how to bring the self-knowledge gained through sustained meditative practice to bear on helping clients in emotional distress.

The heart of this work lies in encountering modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders, while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to these modes. This rigorous course blends didactic, experiential, and small group learning, and includes daily meditations, yoga, and periods of silence.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be better able to:

  • Discuss the importance of meditation practice and self-inquiry through the application of mindfulness practices
  • Define the role of sustained meditative practice in facilitating emotion regulation and increasing the quality of patient outcomes
  • Demonstrate how the therapist/instructor's self-knowledge contributes to the integration of awareness practices within a psychotherapy frame
  • Describe the origins and rationale behind MBCT

The training begins Sunday at 7:00 p.m. CE and CME are available and included in tuition.
