Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
This Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program was established in 1979 by Jon-Kabat-Zinn at the Massachusetts Medical Centre for people suffering chronic and acute stress, chronic pain and illness, and associated anxiety and depression. This is an eight-week program run one night/day a week for 2.5 hours and one full day program during the course. The course cultivates and teaches participants a range of mindfulness practices in order to cultivate an observant, accepting, non-judgmental and compassionate attitude towards their own experiences. These experiences are made up of and include thoughts and cognitions, emotional states, body sensations and impulses. There is a lot of research around the efficacy and effectiveness of the MBSR program for a wide range of problems related to physical, mental and emotional health.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is closely based on the MBSR program.
Developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale (MBCT) in order to intervene to prevent relapse or recurrent episodes of major depression for clients who have had a major depressive episode in their lives.
It brings together all of the elements of the mindfulness-based stress reduction program with the addition of cognitive therapy components. Its original aim was to prevent relapse around major depression it also has application to other disorders.
