Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) MBSR is a third wave cognitive and behavioral therapy that focuses on mindfulness and teaches each client to be in the present moment, accept feelings as they come in, and nonjudgmentally. While this can be a 8-12 week manualized program, we integrate these principles into the CBT clinical work. For example, yoga is a piece of the program and most clinicians encourage clients to practice yoga in conjunction with their clinical work with a clinician at the CWC.
