What is the Masterclass about?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) represents an integration between two very different traditions: the eastern tradition of insight meditation, founded in Buddhism, and the more recent western tradition of cognitive and clinical science. In order to become MBCT teachers, we need to understand, appreciate and respect the contributions of both traditions.
This workshop invites participants to explore the “C” side of MBCT. What exactly is the cognitive understanding of human distress that underlies both cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and MBCT? What are the intentions of the two approaches? What are the differences between CBT and MBCT? And what do they have in common?

The workshop will be both interactive and experiential. It will offer opportunities for participants to explore, both through experience and through discussion, how the integration of a cognitive conceptual framework with intensive training in mindfulness meditation helps participants in MBCT classes to respond kindly and wisely to distress, and how it addresses key processes that create vulnerability to depression and contribute to the persistence of low mood.
