Default Depression research: mindfulness based cognitive therapy (expert available)

Research revealed today outlines the success of group-taught meditation therapies, such as mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) when treating depression. The Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine offers a course of MBCT sessions that aim to teach patients the skills needed to help recognise and cope with the signs of depression.

I have heard of this + I use it myself some.. I brought some mindfulness techniques (a book on philosophies + methods..) to my therapist (she read the book too, and we discussed ideas that came up) and I do find that it is a very valuable technique for gaining insight and assistance with coping...
Mindfulness is a way of becoming aware of who you are + how you are feeling at any time.. + why + the realities of the world...
I have found it especially valuable in connecting with my feelings, facing fears, and dealing with things a bit more efficiently kind of, while keeping the whole picture/long view in mind...
Of course, I fall off the meditation wagon often enough.. but the strategies are still there, if I practice them.
I do really find mindfulness/meditation useful when used with CBT (the most common type of therapy..)
:) Thanks, TTL Bot.
