Meet the Team

Zindel V. Segal, Ph. D.

Distinguished Professor of Psychology in Mood Disorders
University of Toronto-Scarborough

Dr. Zindel Segal is one of the co-developers of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. He has worked alongside John Teasdale and Mark Williams for a number of years, studying how people who have suffered from depression can prevent further episodes of the illness from coming back into their lives.


Dr. Segal has studied and published widely on psychological treatments for depression for more than 30 years, especially the nature of psychological prophylaxis for this recurrent and disabling disorder. His early work helped to characterize psychological markers of relapse vulnerability in affective disorder, and provided the empirical rationale for offering training in mindfulness mediation to recurrently depressed patients in recovery. An NIMH-funded investigator, he is an author of 130 scientific articles and ten books, including The Mindful Way Through Depression, a patient guide for achieving mood balance in everyday life.
