Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy: what have we learned since 2002?

Event number: 17431
3 CPD hours
Presentation/Seminar
Presenter(s): Dr Maura Kenny

The seminal text book Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression: A New Approach to Preventing Relapse (Segal, Teasdale & Williams) was first published in 2002. Since then mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) have proliferated and been applied to many conditions, sometimes well ahead of their evidence base. Maura has just returned from the Oxford Mindfulness Centre where she was based for 6 months, and will provide an update on the latest theoretical and research findings.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion participants will know:

  • Latest theory and evidence base of MBIs in mental health
  • Guidelines on which clients are most likely to benefit.
  • Considerations around teaching and training in MBI.
