Abstract

The present study aimed to examine the effectiveness of integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) on major depressive disorder and suicidal thoughts in a depressive case suffering from suicidal thoughts. This research was an experimental single-case study with a before-and-after design and six-month follow-up. Data were collected using a clinical interview, the Beck Depressive Inventory, and the Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation. Results indicated the effectiveness of the intervention in decreasing the symptoms of depression and suicidal thoughts, with 64% and 67% improvements in depression and suicidal thoughts, respectively. These effects were maintained during the follow-up period.
