Even though RCT does not have a lot of information out there on how successful it is, there have been studies that show it is indeed effective. From what there is out there about the use of RCT, it has been proven to use a framework that helps to explain client experiences from various situations. It also looked into presenting issues and coping with chronic illness. It may also be a useful alternative for people who have experienced trauma. There has been some evidence that short term relational therapy can also be effective with people living with eating disorders. One of the most important outcome research that is available in the importance of perceived support. It has been linked to RCT’s ability to provide openness for different views, vulnerability, and its ability to help clients respond appropriately to others.  

The value of the MBCT program has strong evidence to support its ability to have a positive outcome. It is commonly used to treat mood disorders and has also been used to treat people who are living with chronic and treatment-resistant depression. There have been many studies done that show it can significantly reduce the risk of depressive relapse. I also was involved in a study that used the MBCT program on individuals who suffered from more than one mood disorder at the same time. My colleagues and I found MBCT was helpful in reducing the risk of depressive symptoms, and decreasing the level of impairment in work, social or leisure articles, and family life and home responsibilities. By seeing firsthand how the MBCT program can positively impact one’s wellbeing in various aspects of their lifestyle is one of the main reasons why I believe in its benefits and use it in my approach.
