Prof Mark Williams - Keynote and more
Mark’s main focus of research and clinical work has been how best to understand how best to prevent serious clinical depression and suicide. He is Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology and Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford. With colleagues John Teasdale and Zindel Segal, they developed Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for prevention of relapse and recurrence in depression, and research has now found that MBCT markedly reduces the rate of future depression in those who have suffered the most serious and persistent forms of major depression.
