Product Description

Review

MBCT is a major achievement. Based on a coherent body of experimental work, the treatment has proven its worth in reducing the recurrence of depression and, as a consequence, changing the future prospects of numerous people whose life is blighted by repeated episodes of this disabling condition. This second edition will be widely welcomed by practitioners; every chapter has been updated and numerous new practical aids have been added, including downloadable practice exercises and handouts. Thoroughly recommended." - David M. Clark, DPhil, University of Oxford, UK

"Warmly written, accessible, and deeply insightful. This landmark book has played a key role in making mindfulness a central concern in clinical practice. The up-to-date second edition not only summarizes the extraordinary expansion of research evidence, but also is immensely practical and filled with clinical wisdom. Important, too, is its emphasis on compassion. A 'must' for all therapists interested in mindfulness." - Paul Gilbert, PhD,F BPsS, OBE, University of Derby, UK

"This book has revolutionized not only the treatment of depression but the entire field of psychotherapy, bringing mindfulness practices into the treatment of many disorders and motivating an explosion of research. This second edition provides detailed guidelines for implementing the therapy that have been refined by a decade of experience. It also describes the growing mountain of evidence in favor of mindfulness-based interventions. A 'must have' for clinicians and researchers." - Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, Yale University, Connecticut, USA

"What began as a thoughtful new approach to treating depression over a decade ago has since changed the face of cognitive therapy. In this truly outstanding second edition, the authors offer crystal-clear instructions for teaching the MBCT program. Important new chapters have been added on embodying compassion and practicing inquiry in the teaching process. The authors review the impressive research on MBCT and offer reflections on how it actually works. Clinicians of all theoretical orientations and levels of experience will discover insights and practical skills that can have a vital impact on how they practice psychotherapy."- Christopher K. Germer, in private practice, Arlington, Massachusetts

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the second edition of a seminal psychology text book. It describes how the ancient Buddhist meditative practice of Mindfulness was integrated in the clinical treatment of chronic depression. In the process it illuminates how depression can become chronic and how specific aspects of mindfulness can contribute to its resolution.
The book is also a very detailed guide on how to set up and run a group for the mindfulness based cognitive treatment of chronic depression and it provides a wealth of great resources including handouts and audio recordings.
It is written in a crystal clear style and manages to convey complex ideas and research findings in a concise and understandable manner.
I credit these authors with spreading the word for Mindulness meditation within NHS mental health services to a level that would have been unimaginable a few years ago and for starting a veritable revolution, not just in the treatment of depression, but of every other mental health problem known to man. For this I salute them!

This book has provided friendly, but academically rigorous, guidance on delivering the NICE recommended Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course. Teaching points for each week are clearly explained with examples of how these may arise in the course of the group reflections during the sessions. There is extra guidance in this edition on the skill of Enquiry, and on the All-Day Session during the course, so it is well worth buying as an update to the first edition. Rich in depth and detail.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Michael Chaskalson on 22 Feb 2013
Format: Hardcover
Reading the first edition of this book was like having your eyes opened to a fresh world of human potential. The authors blazed a trail, bringing up to the minute science and an insight into the operation of psychological mechanisms to bear on the ancient arts of mindfulness and meditation. Now it's even better. The new chapter on the inquiry process is especially helpful, casting clear light on what might otherwise be arcane. It's good to have audio at last and to have the science reprised to see where things have got to after ten years. And it's great to have opened up the discussion around compassion. It's all altogether really welcome.

Although I am just dipping into it at the moment I can see the development from the first edition and I am very glad of it's support for teaching MBCT. Having only taught MBSR up to this point I have already found it a very useful adjunct and am now embarking on my first MBCT programme. The notes for the particpants are excellent too, thorough and very down to earth. Thank you.
