Introduction and Aims
The aim of the present study was the evaluation of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy efficacy on self-compassion of patients with mixed anxiety-depression disorder.
 Materials and Methods
Three participants with mixed anxiety-depression disorder were selected by available sampling. Participants evaluated 9 times by Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and Neff self-compassion Scale (SCS). For data analysis, we employed procedure index, Cohen’ rate of variability, interpretation of ups and downs in the graphs. In the hand to determine the clinical significant percent recovery and effect sizes were recruited.
MBCT significantly increased self-compassion in patients who received MBCT and also controlled their anxiety, depressive signs and symptoms in their follow-up (60 days).
