Dr. Mark Lau of the Vancouver CBT Centre is proud to offer a number of workshops on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT is a relatively new psychological approach originally developed to help individuals stay well after recovering from repeated bouts of depression. MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.MBCT combines the ideas of cognitive therapy for depression with meditation pactices from MBSR designed to cultivate mindfulness.
