Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Worksheet?
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a type of psychotherapy that combines cognitive aspects of therapy with mindfulness techniques to train an individual to become more present-oriented. The key is to make a conscious effort to acknowledge and accept all thoughts and feelings as they come without any judgement or criticism.
How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet is based on the Body Scan technique that is used to achieve a mindful state in MBCT. It helps individuals become aware of their bodily sensations and make it their current focus as opposed to negative thoughts and worries.
How to use the worksheet?
The worksheet provides a body scan script that a therapist can use in their sessions to teach the technique to their clients. It can also be provided to the clients to take home for practising purposes. Instruct the clients to try and practise it at least once daily si that it can be used correctly when the need arises.
