According to the mindfulness-oriented psychotherapy, the aim of this research is to explore the influence of mindful emotion course on the elderly’s depression and well-being. Our research adopts single-group pre and post test investigation on valid samples – 31 members of a senior college of technology in New Taipei City. Geriatric Depression Scale and Chinese People Happiness Degree Scale are both the investigation tools used in this research. Through descriptive analysis and t-test statistic analysis, this research reveals that “mindful emotion course” fails to cause any impact on the elderly’s depression and wellbeing. However, it is the degree of the elderly’s depression that will influence the relation between the mindful emotion course and well-being. The sense of happiness of high depression group has a tremendous elevation after the course while that of the low depression group has no radical change. The relevant results and suggestions of this research are welcome for further reference of research and lecture.
