OBJECTIVE: the aim of this multiple case study was to to evaluate the applicability of the group protocol of an 8-week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy program adapted for the individual clinical care of patients with symptoms of depression. METHOD: the method used was to study multiple cases, in which 11 cases of patients with a diagnosis of mild to moderate depression who underwent intervention adapted from this protocol were evaluated in the results of measures of depression, anxiety, stress and mindfulness. RESULTS: the results indicated a significant reduction in these symptoms, as well as an increase in mindfulness in everyday life. CONCLUSION: the benefits of the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy intervention can be presented both in the context of group clinical care, as well as in the individual. In this study, all study participants had significant improvement in the symptoms of depression, as well as in the levels of anxiety and stress, consistent with the data presented in the literature. There is an urgent need for a greater number of studies of this nature. Future research, especially those of an empirical nature, controlled and randomized, will consolidate the external validity of the results found by studies with nature such as this one.
