Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an eight-week workshop designed to help people who struggle with repeated mood and anxiety problems. MBCT offers a unique opportunity to restore well-being and prevent future episodes of anxiety and depression.
In eight weeks of psycho-education, guided meditations, group dialogue, and home practice, you’ll learn:
- What depression is and why you’re vulnerable
- How to avoid the same old automatic reactions
- New and helpful ways of responding to triggers
- How to live in the present and reconnect with the joy and meaning in your life
This course is also a pre-requisite for the Facilitation Certificate in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.
This course is free for holders of a valid RAMQ card, and requires a referral from a physician.
*This class is offered in French.
** Please note: The registration process will include a screening questionnaire and personal interview to ensure you are a good fit for the course. If you are currently going through depression, if you have suicidal ideations, if you currently have a problem with substance abuse or alcohol, if you have symptoms related to unresolved PTSD or a history of psychosis, this group is not recommended for you, and instead we encourage you to request an appointment at our psychology clinic.
