Mindfulness plays an important role in variables associated with depression. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction therapy on cognitive emotion regulation strategies and anxiety and depression rate in patients with major depressive disorder. For this purpose, in a semi-experimental design with pre-test and post-test and control group, 30 patients with major depression were selected from available samples. They were assigned to two groups of experiment and control, randomly. The groups were evaluated in terms of depression, anxiety and cognitive emotion regulation strategies both before and after the intervention and in a two-month follow-up. The experimental group underwent two months of therapy based on mindfulness. The result of combined analysis of variance indicated that intervention based on mindfulness, significantly decreased depressive, anxiety and cognitive emotion regulation maladaptive strategies symptoms. It appears that mindfulness-based therapy, can be a good way to treat and prevent recurrence of the disorder by targeting the involved mechanisms in changing the cognitive emotional regulation strategies in patients with major depression.
