Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic intervention, which integrates elements of cognitive behavioural therapy for depression with the clinical application of mindfulness meditation. MBCT is currently recommended in several national clinical guidelines as a preventative treatment for recurrent major depressive disorder. Over the last fifteen years there has been a growing interest in MBCT and its clinical potential in the prevention of depressive episodes. In this article, we review the current status of the research in the field.
