SPECIAL PROGRAMS

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Sundays April 8th - June 3rd 2018, 5-7 p.m. 
(no session Memorial Day weekend)

MBCT is an 8-week program designed to help those with recurrent depression, anxiety or chronic unhappiness learn skills to reduce relapse and live fully. MBCT is an outgrowth of MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), with a particular focus on the unique challenges of chronic depression and mood. The program can also be very helpful for those with anxiety and other mood challenges.

The program is best suited for those that are not currently in the midst of a major depressive episode. All participants will be interviewed prior to beginning the course to determine if the program is appropriate for their individual needs.

The class will meet for 8 2-hour long sessions beginning Sunday April 8th through June 3rd. There will be no class on May 27th (Memorial Day weekend). The fee is $650.- for the series which may be covered in part by insurance.

For more information about MBCT, see this wonderful Ted talk with Zindel Siegel, one of the developers of MBCT.

Jennifer Egert, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City and an artist. As a doctoral student, she trained in mind-body approaches to managing health and emotional difficulties. She worked at the VA medical center for 9 years as a health psychologist, caring for veterans with illness, disability and at end of life. 

She began her own personal study and mindfulness practice in 2002, exploring the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, G.I. Gurdjieff, Thich Nhat Hanh and others. She has trained in both MBCT and MBSR as well with other mindfulness-based psychotherapies and interventions (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Somatic Experiencing). Through her own practice and work with others in groups and in psychotherapy, she has come to understand the power of mindfulness practice in helping people find a sense of acceptance, compassion, and wholeness in the face of trauma, depression, anxiety and other challenges we all face as human beings.
