Official 8-wk mindfulness trainings

There are two evidence based mindfulness trainings:

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

The MBSR training is developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the hospital of Massachusets in 1970. This training was originally developed for patients with chronic pain of which doctors were running out of medical options. In the MBSR training patients learned to develop a different attitude towards their pain, which led to better coping strategies. Currently, the MBSR training (also named attention/focus training) is being effectively applied by therapist in people with mild depressive and anxiety symptoms, such as worry, rumination, stress or burn out.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

The MBCT training is also an 8-week training, developed by Mark Williams, John Teasdale and Zindel Segal with the aim of reducing the chance of relapse depression. The MBCT training includes mindfulness exercises from the MBSR training combined with elements from cognitive therapy. In addition to reducing relapse rates in depression, this training has shown to be effective for other target groups (e.g. people with anxiety, medically unexplained symptoms and ADHD).
