New Study Shows MBCT as Good as Antidepressants for Preventing Depressive Relapse

Great new study that shows Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) can be as effective as antidepressant medication for preventing relapse in depression. Dr. Zindel Segal, lead author of the study and co-developer of MBCT describes mindfulness training as: “It’s kind of like going like going to the gym and working a muscle, except in this case you’re not working a muscle in your body, you’re working the muscles in your brain that help you understand and control your emotions.”
