ABSTRACT

Caring fora child with an intellectual disability (ID) is associated with significantpsychological distress. Interventions include cognitive behavioural therapy(CBT) and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Mindfulness-integrated CBT(MiCBT) may offer a balance between CBT’s change focus and MBSR’s acceptancefocus for these parents. Five participants were recruited and provided one toone MiCBT tailored to parental carers of children with ID. Four participantscompleted the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales 21 (DASS-21) pre-treatment andpost-treatment. Reliable change analysis was used to identify clinicallyreliable change. One participant dropped out after four sessions, fourcompleted eight of the available eight sessions. Two participants reportedreductions in depressive and stress symptoms, and one of these, additionallyreported a reduction in anxiety symptoms. All four participants who completed treatmentrated the treatment as acceptable. MiCBT shows promise as an intervention toassist parental carers of children with ID.
