Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy involves applying mindfulness to cognitive therapy. It is used as an intervention designed to help reduce symptoms of depression and is based on the idea that thoughts and emotions can be observed without judgment and without trying to control or suppress them.
Mindfulness techniques, such as mindful breathing, are taught to help individuals become more aware of the present moment, and in doing so, become better equipped to respond wisely to negative thoughts and feelings about themselves and the world around them.
People who practice mindfulness-based cognitive therapy often report feeling less depressed, and research has found it to be an effective treatment for depression.
