Topic Description:

 Recent treatment approaches for anxiety and depressive disorders stress the importance of addressing transdiagnostic factors such as rumination, worry, and impulsivity as part of comprehensive intervention.  Both CBT and training in mindfulness meditation have shown the ability to disengage neural networks supporting rumination and worry, along with enhancing clinical outcomes through increased tolerance of negative affective states. This workshop will explore, from both a data and personal practice perspective, which elements of mindfulness training are best suited to be incorporated into clinical practice, how their utilization can be compatible with a pre-existing CBT therapeutic frame, and how doing so has the potential to yield benefits for both patients and therapists alike.  


  1.  Review the evidence base for mindfulness meditation in the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders.

  2. Understand how to integrate and appropriately sequence formal/informal mindfulness practices into the psychotherapeutic treatment of Major Depressive Disorder.

  3. Engage in experiential practice of the 3 Minute Breathing Space and understand how brief changes in attentional focus can be used to address negative automatic processing cycles.
