Code: BH/18/0127 Mindfulness Programme for Health and Adult Social Care BY INVITE ONLY

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an approach developed in the 90’s by three cognitive therapy specialists in an internationally linked programme of research into the prevention of depression.  It is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence as a means to prevent depressive relapse but is being used increasingly widely with people who experience anxiety and stress.

MBCT aims to help people build their own strategies for staying well based upon skills and practices that are best taught in a group rather than a one to one context.

The core of the MBCT approach is practice and experiential learning, developed over an eight week programme of weekly 2 hour sessions. Participants are also expected to commit to 30 – 40 minutes of daily mindfulness practice.

Note: This is not group therapy and does not require you to share personal information or talk about past experiences, although you will reflect on how your mindfulness practice is developing. People engaged in counselling and/or mental health services are encouraged to seek advice from their relevant health professional prior to enrolling.

If you work in Sussex Partnership Trust / Section 75 services please do not apply for this programme. There are a wide range of opportunities open to you from the Sussex Mindfulness Centre.
