Book Description

1 Dec 2005 0120885190 978-0120885190
Eastern spiritual traditions have long maintained that mindfulness meditation can improve well-being. More recently, mindfulness-based treatment approaches have been successfully utilized to treat anxiety, depressive relapse, eating disorders, psychosis, and borderline personality disorder. This book discusses the conceptual foundation, implementation, and evidence base for the four best-researched mindfulness treatments: mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). All chapters were written by researchers with extensive clinical experience. Each chapter includes the conceptual rationale for using a mindfulness-based treatment and a review of the relevant evidence base. A detailed case study illustrates how the intervention is implemented in 'real life', exploring the clinical and practical issues that may arise and how they can be managed. This book will be of use to clinicians and researchers interested in understanding and implementing mindfulness based treatments. It offers a comprehensive introduction to the best-researched mindfulness-based treatments. It covers wide range of problems & disorders (anxiety, depression, eating, psychosis, personality disorders, stress, pain, relationship problems, etc). It discusses a wide range of populations (children, adolescents, older adults, couples). It includes wide range of settings (outpatient, inpatient, medical, mental health, workplace). It also includes clinically rich, illustrative case study in every chapter. International perspectives are represented (authors from US, Canada, Britain, Sweden).

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply excellent 12 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had hoped that this book would represent good value for money as it's not cheap! All hopes and expectations were surpassed. It is a very very well written book... clear and well structured. It starts with an excellent summary of how mindfulness and meditation are integrated in modern treatment approaches and then goes on to describe the background of the application in specific cases illustrated with case studies. The book, I feel, would appeal to anyone interested in how mindfulness can be / is being applied clinically or in the science behind that application. A very valuable resource supporting, in my view, a very valuable approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 17 Jan 2013
By MgtM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is great. I bought it second hand and it looks like it might have some fire damage so it's a bit battered but I don't care. Sections are great for dipping in and getting an overview and moving into deeper stuff if required. Great reference section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Working in Stress? Good Book for your Library 6 Jan 2008
By William B. Baun - Published on Amazon.com
I am a wellness coach at a cancer center and stress is one of our biggest challenges. Last year I bought this book in hopes that it would serve as a resource for me and staff around "mindfullness training" and stress reduction techniques.

It has been helpful for it has not only helped build my knowledge and understanding around mindfullness training, but it also has given me a understanding of the empirical evidence. Even though I am not a therapists the case studies have been very helpful in building my understanding of how mindfullness training works in real world situations.

This book has accompanied me on several plane trips when I usually take a good mystery, but instead have been deep inside mindfullness concepts I did not what to give up. It's packed full of information - but even for a wellness coach a must if you are working on stress in the worksite.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Peek into the Inner Workings of Mindfulness Workshops and Programs 14 Aug 2008
By Mark Waldman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since I work in the field of mindfulness and meditation research, this book proved to be(pardon the expression) enlightening. Anyone who wants to teach a class or a workshop that uses any form of self-reflective strategy will find something useful here, and I highly recommend it to psychotherapists since mindfulness-based therapies are proving to be one of the most effective ways to treat serious emotional problems. I was particularly impressed by the ways that mindfulness has been successfully integrated into weight loss and eating disorder programs. Another fascinating chapter describes how meditation and mindfulness can be used to enhance relationships between partners. A real gem: expensive but well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful 7 Dec 2009
By Mansi Poddar, psychotherapist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first thing that struck me about this book was the amount of info that it had. I got confused with the layout and how to go about pulling pertinent info from this huge book. She includes theories( developmental etc), dsm, interventions, handouts, goals, assessment, interview etc. It is very confusing and the way it is divided and does not make sense. However, if you are patient and read through the introduction you should be able to make good use of this book. Do not let the organisation and piles of info deter you, her interventions are very CBT and useful, I have found success using them. But do read the introduction where she describes how the book is organised. Another series to look into- treatment planning by Jongsma( much better organised and def. simpler!)
