The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) on psoriasis patients’ symptoms, anxiety, depression, and psychological well-being. The study also examined if MBCT significantly impacted the domain and mediating variables of a clinically modified Buddhist psychological model (CBPM), which are acceptance, mindfulness, self-compassion, aversion, non-attachment, attention, rumination, and worry.


One hundred and one participants were randomly allocated to MBCT (n = 51) or TAU (n = 50). Participants were measured pre-treatment, post-treatment, and after a 3-month follow-up period.


Analyses revealed that when baseline variables were controlled, there was a significant reduction or increase in the hypothesized direction for each variable over time in the MBCT group, but not in the treatment as usual group.


The results suggest that MBCT may be a useful adjunct therapy for those suffering from psoriasis and the associated psychological symptoms relating to the condition.
