MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy)

MBCT is an evidence-based group therapy for preventing depressive relapse and treating mood disorders. It reduces depression, anxiety and stress. It follows an eight-week of two-and-a-half hour group therapy curriculum that combines the tools of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) with the practice of mindfulness meditation.

MBCT was developed by Zindel Segal and draws from the research Segal undertook with Mark Williams and John Teasdale that is documented in their book Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression. The heart of MBCT lies in acquainting participants with the modes of mind that often characterize depression, anxiety, and emotional distress while simultaneously giving them tools to develop a new relationship to these modes.

FriendlyCare is certified to facilitate MBCT after an intensive training by the Centre for Mindfulness Studies Toronto, conducted in the Philippines in 2018.

Who Should Attend
Individuals experiencing moderate anxiety or depression and people with a history of depression.

Timing
8 weekly sessions of 2.5 hours each plus Orientation & Interview (9 weeks, 23 hours)

Participants Will Learn

Skills and practices to manage depression, anxiety and prevent relapse. By learning to identify the triggers and symptoms of anxiety and depression, participants can effectively address these issues as they arise in everyday life.

A commitment to attendance and home practice activities is required. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend a day-long silent retreat but it is an optional part of the program.

 

From home to classroom, back and forth, the teachers who participated in FriendlyCare mindfulness programs have stories to tell how the program helped them.

“With the breathing space, the MBCT program helps me cope with grief for the loss of my lola …”
“Nabawasan yung stress na naiisip ko, mas naka focused ako…”
“The three-minute breathing space helps me to pause.”
“It gives me time to assess and compose self…enables me to balance myself.”
“Pag nagagalit ako, hihinga lang ako and I feel more comfortable…lalo na sa school.”

The Purple Centers Foundation teachers have integrated the 3-minute breathing space in their students’ daily routine inside the classroom. The experience of quietness for at least 3-minutes helps the students to be less chaotic and more focused. It makes the learning and teaching experience less stressful for both students and teachers.

Teacher Mark said that a few minutes to pause for mindful breathing in the classroom allows him to assess himself, process his thoughts and be composed which he finds very important being a teacher and a role model to his students and co-workers.

For Teacher Jane, the practice of mindfulness has become part of her discipline which has significantly increased her peaceful mode especially when she feels the situation is going messy and chaotic. She is very thankful for FriendlyCare for facilitating MBCT to them, for teaching them to meditate and allowing them to freely share with the group their experiences.
