MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION (MBSR) is the largest and best-known stress reduction programme in the world. It was developed by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center over 30 years ago, to support patients suffering from chronic pain and has since been adapted by Mark Williams, John Teasdale and Zindel Segal as a relapse prevention programme for depression (MBCT).
Its benefits have been widely endorsed by the international scientific and medical communities, including the UK’s National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE)
