About this Event

CMAP Health Ottawa presents MBCT Online

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) has been designed to help people with recurrent depression and chronic unhappiness. It aims to guide people in the cultivation of mindfulness, which may support the development of a greater understanding and awareness of one’s experience. This awareness, combined with cognitive therapy skills, has been shown to assist people in the detection of early warning signs, often averting the downward spiral into a depressive episode. The programme is also helpful for life stress and worrying.

The program consists of 8 weekly 2-hour sessions of instruction and one full day of practice after the sixth session. In the course meetings, we learn and practice skills of mindfulness and cognitive therapy. Between sessions, we practice daily at home. The course includes handouts, guided meditations and other course materials. Find more information in our blog on our website:
