Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Skills for Resilience During COVID-19 (MBCT-R)

June 30, 2021 @ 5:30 pm


MBCT skills for addressing depression and anxiety – and staying well

Two Live Online Courses Starting in June! More Details Below!

Resilience is the ability to respond to adversity, something we all need in these challenging times.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based educational program shown to prevent depressive relapse and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. MBCT combines the practice of mindfulness with practical tools from cognitive therapy.

In MBCT-R, you will learn skills for responding to the anxiety and emotional challenges arising from our current situation. Through the practice of mindfulness you will learn to engage the body, mind and heart to relate differently to challenging thoughts and emotional distress, and to help you to care for yourself and cultivate resilience.

This live online program allows participants to engage with the instructor(s) and with each other. Please see below for testimonials.

Please note that these two MBCT-R courses will be recorded. Some participants are part of a research study which requires that recordings of the leader teaching are reviewed as part of the research. Individual private breakout sessions with peers will not be recorded. Your consent to be recorded during the large group is required, so if you do not feel comfortable with this requirement, you will not be able to participate in this group and we suggest you consider another CMC group. There will be an opportunity to participate in MBCT-R without the requirement for recording in several months when the research study is completed.

“Thanks again for the guidance and compassion that you and Kiera offered during the workshop. it was an invaluable experience that has already helped in a variety of situations and I’m grateful to have acquired these tools. I have been most amazed by my ability to be in the moment, not an easy thing for me. …. I never imagined being able to slow myself down long enough to choose how to think and feel about a given situation instead of staying trapped in the “default settings” of mental and physical panic. Or that certain patterns of thought and feeling weren’t personal failings but simply the best way I knew how to manage. These realizations seem so basic and simple, but were anything but.  Thank you for helping me get out of my own way.”
