Carving a New Path: Learning to Work Wisely with Emotional Experience Through Mindfulness-Based Treatment of Depression

September 25, 2020 | 9:00 am – 12:15 pm

Approved for 3 Continuing Education Hours

Join The Ohio State University College of Social Work for a free webinar on mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, which is an evidence-based practice that combines elements of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes. At the heart of this work is becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize depression and developing a new relationship to them. This work rests on the ability of mindfulness to cultivate self-awareness, attentional control, and emotion regulation, as well as qualities of acceptance, self-compassion, and non-judgement.


  • Provide guidance on how to integrate a mindfulness approach to depression into one’s current psychotherapeutic practice
  • Participants will gain skills in helping clients to use mindfulness to observe emotional experience, identify habitual patterns, and recognize choice points in their daily lives for responses that can be informed by self-awareness and wisdom
  • Review evidence for a mindfulness-based CBT treatment of depression, and situate this approach within related traditions
  • Describe core clinical methods used to promote psychological flexibility and other ACT-relevant outcomes
