Perinatal Group: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Mindfulness is an accepting and non-judgmental awareness of thoughts, emotions, and present circumstances. MBCT blends cognitive therapy and mindfulness practices. Participants familiarize themselves with modes of thinking that contribute to negative mood states and develop new relationships to thoughts to promote healthier ways of living.

Research has shown this approach to be quite effective, including:

  • Reducing depressive symptoms, especially in preventing recurrence of depression
  • Relieving anxious symptoms
  • Lowering stress
  • Promoting sleep
  • Supporting healthy interpersonal relationships
