Though originally developed to address recurrent depression, MBCT may be beneficial to people seeking treatment for a wide range of mental health concerns.

Compare and contrast MBCT to other 3rd Wave Psychotherapies

Define the Foundational Concepts of MBCT for Fast-Track Implementation with any Patient

Implement Practical Strategies and Exercises Used Within MBCT Sessions
