Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Depression

Depression, and the suffering of individuals, their families and communities is a very serious health burden to endure. New approaches to preventing relapse and recurrence of depression are being developed and tested in mindfulness-based programs around the world.

Mark Williams, D.Phil, is a Professor of Clinical Psychology and Wellcome Principal Research Fellow at the University of Oxford. He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Experimental Psychology. With colleagues, he developed the MBCT (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy) Program which is proving to significantly reduce the relapse and recurrence of depression in long-term sufferers.

In this interview, he explains about depression in adults and teenagers and how mindfulness practices can work to help those who are vulnerable and at risk for relapse.
