Description

We live in a world filled with material wealth, live longer and healthier lives, and yet anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and depression have never been more common. What are the driving forces behind these interlinked global epidemics? In this series, Professor Mark Williams (Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow at Oxford University) and Dr Danny Penman discuss the recent scientific advances that have radically altered our understanding of depression and related disorders. Also discussed is the latest treatments and therapies that are offering hope to those suffering from depression. Professor Williams co-developed Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), a treatment for anxiety, stress and depression that is at least as effective as drugs at preventing new episodes of depression. It's now one of the preferred treatments for depression recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. The same technique, based upon an ancient form of meditation, can also help us cope more effectively with the relentless demands of our increasingly frantic world. Professor Williams and Dr Penman co-authored the bestselling book Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World.

Superb

Very good background on depression and pathways to its cure. Not all will agree with all that is said, of course, given the great divisions that exist in this field. I found the information in the first two episodes to be very informative, yet at the same time, very easy to listen to. I very much look forward to hearing more. Thank you.

Like it

I really liked the cognitive therapy , it's better antidepressants which only make you feel better without concentrating on the cause of depression .
i'm writing to you from Syria where depression became so common because of the current events.

Good intro to Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy

This an easy to listen to and interesting Introduction to MBCT. However, in the first 4 episodes, there is not a lot of meat. You really need to get an accompanying book. I've been studying "The Mindful Way through Depression" by Mark Williams, et al. The book comes with a CD for guided meditation exercises. Williams is "interviewed" for the podcasts.
