Description

This excellent guide to incorporating mindfulness into your clinical practice comes with an audio CD containing 6 techniques and exercises enclosed in the back.

As Steven C. Hayes says in the Foreword to the book: “There are other volumes on mindfulness and clinical work but there is nothing else quite like this book.... No other volume of which I am aware is as clear, broad, and expressed in such a clear and consistent voice.... This book is a comprehensive guide to mindfulness methods in clinical practice written by expert clinicians with a long standing interest in contemplative practice and the mindfulness traditions. The authors know the roots of these methods, both in Eastern thought and in Western science. The range of methods is broad, from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, so the focus is wisely placed on targets of change, not just the formal similarities of these techniques…

If you are considering how to include mindfulness work in your clinical practice, you can trust this book. Let this book take you by the hand and show you the territory and to guide you through that process, for your clients and for yourself.”
