Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT)
What Is Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Mindful cognitive behavioral therapy is designed to help people who suffer from repeat bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices. The heart of this work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship with them.
Much like CBT, Celadon Recovery offers Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for our residents with a primary issue of major depression. MCBT is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness and is offered to our residents suffering from debilitative depression. MCBT at Celadon Recovery combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. We offer clients mindful meditation and guided imagery, as well as breathing techniques and Yoga at least three times weekly to practice mindfulness and the principles of CBT collectively.
How Does MCBT Work?
In MCBT, clients learn practical mindfulness exercises and concrete ways of being mindful in their daily lives. First, they learn how to stay mindful through day-to-day activities – eating, breathing, walking, and sitting.
After practicing mindfulness in a low-pressure, they then practice how to stay mindful when negative emotions come about. They learn that when sad or anxious thoughts and emotions arise, they can let these feelings wash over them instead of allowing them to take over. Mindfulness practices such as deep breathing, meditation, and guided imagery help clients stay calm and controlled. Once they’re in control of their emotions, they have a much better chance of selecting an appropriate response to negative thoughts.
