Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy

Behavioral Associates Los Angeles practices Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy


Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an effective treatment for mild to moderate depression. The treatment is particularly helpful for those who experience repeated episodes of depression and has been found to prevent relapse.

Its premise lies in an assumption that rumination about negative past experiences leads to hopelessness which subsequently leads to the return of depressed mood. Learning the skill of mindfulness (nonjudgmental presence that includes distancing from negative thinking) helps to establish and maintain a stable, positive mood.
