This was administered to the experimental group during eight weekly, 90-minute sessions and collected data was analyzed using mixed model repeated measures analysis of variance. Results: Findings showed that MBCT had a significant effect on improving depression symptoms (F= 55.06, P= 0.001), rumination (F= 25.88, P= 0.001), and emotion regulation subscales including cognitive reappraisal (F= 9.27, P= 0.02), and suppression (F= 4.69, P= 0.036), and treatment gains were maintained at follow-up.
