MBCT Group Jan 2021 Starting Soon!

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Group – Winter 2021

Events, Group Therapy, Mindfulness, News, Psych Clinic

The University Psychological Clinic is offering a Saturday session of the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) group.

Join the Psych Clinic for an eight-week MBCT group starting on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021. The MBCT group serves as treatment for people with depression as well as other mental health conditions. While the chemical and physical aspects of depression and other mental health disorders are far more complex than just feeling down, current research supports a cognitive approach as a way to change patterns of brain functioning and build resilience in people struggling with chronic depression.

This program uses a combination of cognitive therapy and mindfulness to help participants form new, healthier modes of thought. MBCT initiates a cognitive change that helps clients move past events that have the potential to trigger relapse. Participants learn how to view their thoughts without judgment.

If you are interested in attending or referring a potential group participant, please contact the Psychological Clinic to begin the process. Call (734) 764-3471 to schedule a screening. Alternately, you can contact the Clinic through the website form found here: https://mari.umich.edu/psych-clinic/contact-us.

If you missed the start of this session or are interested in a group at a different time or on a different day, please contact us! We have ongoing groups and can organize new sessions based on demand.
