Inhoud cursus

MBCT for Life (MBCT-L) is a recent adaptation of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT-D; Teasdale, Segal, & Williams, 2013) applicable to the general population. It offers mindfulness practices and cognitive-behavioural techniques in ways that are intended to be accessible to all. It guides participants in how to apply this learning in everyday life both to manage what is painful and difficult and to cultivate qualities such as compassion and equanimity. It offers a different way of living that supports people to work with challenges, including recurring patterns of thought and behaviour that create suffering, but also to savour life and to flourish. MBCT-L follows the model of MBCT-D, with 2-hour weekly sessions, about 40 minutes of home practice per day, and a full day of mindfulness practice between session 6 and 7. It is an in-depth programme intended to cultivate lasting and sustainable change.

This 2-day workshop is designed for mindfulness teachers who have been trained in MBCT and are interested in learning this new curriculum. The workshop begins with an introduction to the theoretical and empirical background for MBCT-L. We then consider the organization of the 8-week curriculum and explore the practices and exercises that are not found in MBCT for depression but are specific to MBCT-L’s broader intentions. These include appreciation and befriending practices, a “vicious flower” model of what maintains distress, and skills that support greater responsiveness in thought and action. Participants will practice teaching these elements of the program to each other in pairs or small groups.
