About the Event
Join Dr. Lailey and Monique Mercier for 8 Thursdays this fall for the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy training at Kindful Psychology Services downtown Port Arthur.
MBCT is an evidence-based group therapy training for preventing depressive relapse and treating mood disorders. It reduces depression, anxiety and stress. You do not need to have depression or anxiety to benefit from MBCT.
Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is designed to bring awareness to the habits of negative thinking that leads to depressive and stressful moments. Combined, MBCT interrupts how we usually react to situations, so we can choose to respond in more skillful ways.
Research has demonstrated MBCT is as effective as antidepressants in the prevention of depressive relapse or recurrence (Kuyken, 2008).
The group also consists of an optional half day silent meditation retreat (weekend date TBD). This is an excellent program for anyone who wants to reduce stress and improve resilience. A maximum of 16 participants will be accepted.
