Description:
This study evaluated the effectiveness of an eight-session mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) group intervention programme for treating depression in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. Thirty-two depressed CHD patients were assigned to an MBCT treatment group and a demographically and clinically similar group of 30 cases were assigned to a waiting-list control group. Participants were evaluated at baseline, 8 weeks, and 6 months follow-up with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI), Profile of Mood States (POMS), Psychosocial Adjustment to Illness Scale (PAIS) and the Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS). After each session MBCT participants completed the post-session Questionnaire (PQ) on helpful aspects of therapy, and after the programme completed the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ).
Keywords:
