Masterclass Workshop with Zindel Segal, PhD - Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Zindel Segal
presented by A Mindful Society and SickiKids - The Hospital for Sick Children

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning
686 Bay St
Toronto, ON M5G 0A4
9am - 4.30pm

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based intervention integrating CBT for depression with central components of mindfulness meditation. It is one of the foundational modalities in the MARS-A Program (Mindful Awareness & Resilience Skills for Adolescents), which is one of the mindfulness-based interventions offered to youth at Sick Kids and other paediatric hospitals across Canada.

Dr. Segal is a Professor, Author, and Internationally recognized expert in Mindfulness. He has studied and published widely on psychological treatments for depression for more than 25 years. His publications include Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, and The Mindful Way Through Depression, a patient guide that outlines this approach. MBCT teaches patients to become aware of their own beliefs without responding to them affectively. Dr. Segal is also a highly skilled cognitive therapist, and one of the leading investigators of the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying its therapeutic effects.

*This event is held in collaboration with The Hospital for Sick Children and A Mindful Society

Learning Objectives:

Understand the rationale for the integration of psychotherapeutic and contemplative elements in MBCT.
Review the 8-week structure of MBCT in order to identify the core therapeutic tasks that accompany each of the group sessions.
Practice three forms of mindfulness training utilized in MBCT.
Discuss how the therapist’s personal practice of mindfulness practice can support nascent emotion regulation in group participants throughout MBCT.

Presenter Bio:

Zindel Segal, PhD, is a Professor, Author, and Internationally recognized expert in Mindfulness. He has studied and published widely on psychological treatments for depression for more than 25 years, especially the nature of psychological prophylaxis for this recurrent and disabling disorder. His early work helped to characterize psychological markers of relapse vulnerability in affective disorder, especially the link between affective and self-devaluation components of dysphoria. More recently, he and his colleagues have pioneered the combined use of Mindfulness Meditation and Cognitive Therapy as an effective relapse prevention treatment. Patients who practice Mindfulness develop metacognitive awareness of their emotions which, in turn, reduces their reactivity to negative affect. Dr. Segal’s publications include Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, and The Mindful Way Through Depression, a patient guide that outlines this approach. Dr. Segal's research focuses on psychotherapy, and more specifically, mood disorders, with an interest in both the clinical and cognitive aspects of such disorders. MBCT teaches patients to become aware of their own beliefs without responding to them affectively. Dr. Segal is also a highly skilled cognitive therapist, and one of the leading investigators of the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying its therapeutic effects.
