      EVENT DETAILS
      Spring-Summer 2019 Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Group

      The Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) group, led by experienced and compassionate meditator and registered psychotherapist Sarah Housser MA RP is based on the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy protocols of Dr Zindel Segal of the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Ontario.  The MBCT group has evidence for its effectiveness with anxiety and depression. The MBCT group will meets evenings 11am to 1pm on Sunday mornings beginning Spring 2019 with a full day retreat after Session 4. This experiential group teaches mindfulness practices as a way to encounter and identify those modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders, while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to them. MBCT teaches individuals to become aware of conditioned patterns of mind and mood in an innovative 8 session program integrating mindfulness mediation with cognitive therapy to prevent depressive relapse.  Through the practice of mindful awareness, participants develop the capacity to relate differently to distressing moods and negative thoughts by strengthening an orientation to the present moment. This helps individuals recognize the early signs of relapse allowing for skillful intervention before mood symptoms and negative thought patterns become more severe.
