MBCT, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, is an empirically validated treatment intervention specifically designed to help the prevention of unipolar depression. At AMI we teach an 8-week course that combines the tools of cognitive behavioral therapy with mindfulness-based interventions. Participants in the Atlanta MBCT course are introduced to thought patterns and feeling states that typically characterize mood disorders. They are helped to create new relationships to their thoughts, moods, and physical sensations and this can lead to greater equanimity, acceptance, openness, and healthier relationships with others. This particular course is being used by many of the European National Health Care Services as their primary intervention for recurrent depression. Our classes typically meet in the mornings during the week and enrollment is held to a maximum of 10 people per course.
The cost of this course is $600.00
Enrollment is now CLOSED. Please check back for our next course offering.
