Dr Ruth Baer – Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Hosted at the University of Reading.


1 day workshop presented by Dr Ruth Baer.

MBCT is a family of evidence-based skills training programmes that combine mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive-behavioural exercises to reduce distress and increase well-being. Rooted in both contemplative traditions and psychological science, MBCT programmes are typically provided in group format with weekly sessions exploring a sequence of themes designed to build skills over time. This one-day workshop provides an introduction to MBCT. After briefly exploring its history and origins, we will consider its theoretical foundations and the evidence base supporting its effects. Important topics in the research literature will be discussed, including outcomes, mechanisms of change, and potential adverse effects. Mindfulness practices and exercises will encourage an experiential understanding of mindfulness and the intended learning that may arise.
