Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an innovative, standardized, and manualized treatment program designed to create significant clinical and life improvement in people who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Based on the research and clinical experience of Dr Fabrizio Didonna and documented in his handbook Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for OCD (New York, Guilford Press, 2020) the program integrates the most effective tools of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with the clinical application of mindfulness and self-compassion practices.
This therapeutic model is the culmination of twenty-five years of the founder’s work with hundreds of people affected by OCD, and more than two decades of practicing and teaching meditation, especially MBCT.
Led by senior clinical psychologist, mindfulness teacher and retreat leader Fabrizio Didonna, Psy. D., this workshop analyzes the particular features of OCD patient’s relationship with their private experience, using a mindfulness-based perspective, and help to understand how this rapport might play an important activating and maintaining role in obsessive problem. Through mindfulness exercises and videos of MBCT for OCD sessions, this workshop explores the actual application of mindfulness and compassion practices in working with OCD patients. Furthermore, it explains the rationale, the agenda and contents of the therapeutic model and some practices of the program will be shared with participants.
