This is an introductory workshop for clinicians who treat children suffering from debilitating worries and anxiety. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Children (MBCT-C) is an innovative program designed to help children manage anxiety and stress with care and compassion. Based on the MBCT program for adults, MBCT-C combines the practice and clinical application of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy in a format that is child-friendly and engaging. Background will be provided about the theoretical foundations of MBCT-C, its research support, and the developmental adaptations necessary when implementing a mindfulness-based treatment approach with children. The 12-session MBCT-C program will be described in detail. MBCT-C emphasizes the importance of the clinician's own meditation practice. Clinicians will learn ways to use the self-knowledge gained from his or her own practice to help children develop new ways of relating to the mind states that are characteristic of anxiety disorders. We will explore through discussion, role-plays, and experiential practices, ways that mindful awareness activities are taught to children.
