Pay attention to the present and build a happier future. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Dummies takes you through the eight week MBCT course, using the principles of mindfulness to complement established CBT techniques. MBCT will help you to lower their risk of relapsing into depression and reduce the risk of other mental health disorders including anxiety, stress and low self-esteem, providing a solid foundation for positive mental health.  It teaches you to pay attention to the present, rather than fixating on the past or worrying about the future.
