10 copies of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Dummies by Dr Patrizia Collard to be wonMindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) helps lower the risk of relapsing into depression and reduces the risk of other mental health disorders including anxiety, stress and low self-esteem.

Designed specifically for people prone to recurrent depression, MBCT techniques help people to recognise that holding onto negative feelings is ineffective and mentally destructive. It also gives people a greater awareness of their own body, helping them to identify the signs of oncoming depression and ward off the episode before it starts.

Written by Dr Patrizia Collard – a counsellor, trainer, coach and therapist - newly published Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Dummies takes readers through the eight week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy course, using the principles of mindfulness to complement established CBT techniques.

After providing an introduction to MBCT, what its purpose is and why it is a useful treatment model to understand and use, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Dummies puts mindfulness into practice to help users create the right mental attitude to practicing MBCT. Additionally it helps users to assess themselves, what they have learnt and how they plan to continue, looking at different treatment practices to help readers in areas such as: Stopping the cycle of depression; Breaking free from addiction; Relieving the strain of anxiety; Nurturing hope while living with pain; Finding purpose and meaning when you’re older; and, Bringing harmony to your life. The book finishes with the traditional For Dummies closer – The Part of Tens. This covers Ten Ways to Expand Your Mindfulness Experience; Checking Out Ten Inspirational People; and Surveying (Almost) Ten Inspirational Places to Visit.

Including a CD of mindfulness meditation, and providing a resource for home study, this title is aimed at people suffering from depression, or who are at risk of relapse and who have been recommended a course of MBCT through the NHS. It will also be of interest to people who are seeing or thinking about seeing a therapist and would like to know more about the topic, as well as people who have issues they'd like to manage independently.

Healthcare professionals seeking to apply basic MBCT principles in the course of their work will also find it a useful source of information.
