Research indicates that therapeutic techniques involving mindfulness can result in health benefits for people with psychological or chronic physical conditions. The purpose of this study is to compare the potential benefits experienced by Carers who undertake Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MiCBT) with those who undergo standard counselling services offered through Carers Tasmania. The current study will help determine whether these benefits are indirectly experienced by care recipients.
