Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness

This workshop will allow participants to explore the use of Mindfulness Based CT in their professional practice.

Course Details

Mindfulness has become an increasingly popular method of increasing self-awareness and gaining more control over a modern tendency for mental busyness and negative thinking.  Cognitive Therapy (CT) is similar to mindfulness in that the goal of treatment is an increase in awareness of mal-adaptive thinking that leads to changes in the thought process, which in turn results in behavioural change.  The principle difference between mindfulness and CT is that the former focuses on ‘being with distress,’ with an attitude of acceptance, while CT is more active in attempting to change the causes of distress.  Mindfulness Based Conitive Therapy combines the above modalities by using mindfulness to encourage the client to sit with unpleasant thoughts and feelings while using cognitive techniques to address those difficulties.
