  • The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy combines cognitive therapy and meditation techniques of Buddhist thought. It is primarily used to treat depression, and has been widely used in the treatment of various mental illnesses. The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy consists of various formal and informal meditation practices, including guided body scans, sitting and walking meditations, mindful movement, 3-minute breathing spaces, and focused awareness on routine daily activities. Additionally it also has behav-ioral elements training. The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy may be to enhance metacognitive aware-ness, and enhance the ability to intentionally deploy one's attention, allowing for more flexible cognitive and behavioural responses. A large number of experimental studies have shown that Mindfulness-Based Cogni-tive Therapy is the treatment of a scientific method. More and more people accept and use it in their daily lives.
