The eight-week MBCT group is scheduled for 5:30 – 7 p.m. Tuesdays, starting on September 27 and ending November 8. Please contact the University Psychological Clinic at (734) 615-7853 to learn more and to secure a spot in the group.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy is an eight-week program designed to teach people how to live more mindfully, even in the face of challenges like depression and anxiety. The course teaches a blend of cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness techniques as a way to interrupt unhelpful thinking patterns and increase non-judgmental awareness of the present moment. As a result of this course, you can expect an increase in self-compassion and less reactivity in challenging situations. Participants report feeling more connected to themselves and more satisfied in relationships with others.

How to Register Yourself or Refer a Client
