Book Description

31 Jan 2014

Imagine an 8-week program that can help you overcome depression, anxiety, and stress--by simply learning new ways to respond to your own thoughts and feelings. That program is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and it has been tested and proven effective in clinical trials throughout the world. Now you can get the benefits of MBCT any time, any place, by working through this carefully constructed book. The expert authors introduce specific mindfulness practices to try each week, plus reflection questions, tools for keeping track of progress, and helpful comments from others going through the program. Like a trusted map, this book guides you step by step along the path of change. Guided meditations are provided on the accompanying MP3 CD and are also available as audio downloads. Note: The MP3 CD can be played on CD players (only those marked "MP3-enabled") as well as on most computers. See also the authors' The Mindful Way through Depression, which demonstrates these proven strategies with in-depth stories and examples. Plus, mental health professionals, see also the authors' bestselling therapy guide: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, Second Edition.

Product Description


"I consider MBCT to be an effective means of preventing and treating depression and enhancing emotional well-being. This workbook gives practical advice for applying the principles of MBCT in your life. I recommend it highly."--Andrew Weil, MD, author of "8 Weeks to Optimum Health" and "Spontaneous Happiness" "Wisdom, illuminated and applied! We could ask for nothing more from three of the world's most gifted and caring clinicians, who provide us with a clear and practical guide to understanding and strengthening the mind. This workbook is a generous gift that can help you relieve depression and anxiety, improve your health, and enhance your way of being in the world."--Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of "Mindsight" "Fantastic....[It] functions as a trusted friend, counselor, and guide."--from the Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD "What could be more fabulous than this? An evidence-based treatment for depression translated into a workbook that everyone can use. This is a treatment that has circled the globe for a reason--it works. Fortunately, the authors who translated the treatment into a workbook are the very people who developed the treatment in the first place; all three are expert clinicians and scientists. My advice: 'Try this.'"--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington "Three of the world's leading authorities on psychotherapy and mindfulness have developed a workbook of great clarity and value. It outlines an easy-to-follow, step-by-step program for how to train our minds out of repetitive loops and find states of peace."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, Head, Mental Health Research Unit, University of Derby, United Kingdom "The strategies in this book have truly changed my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource 18 May 2014
By Lucie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work in a mental health setting and have seen how much benefit people get from participating in a mindfulness group. However, it's not always possible for individuals to get on a programme and for a long time now I have been looking for a resource that I can use with people on a one to one basis. This workbook ticks all the boxes and I love the fact that as it goes through the 8 week programme step by step it answers all the questions/problems that come up in a group setting for the individual working through this on their own. I have used this now with several people and it has always met with a positive response. It has helped me to structure therapy sessions and although I still think groups have something unique to offer I no longer feel as though individuals who can't access them for whatever reason are missing out!

I teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in London and elsewhere and I've often referred those course participants who suffer from depression to the authors' previous title: The Mindful Way Through Depression. This new book now takes that one very valuable step further: laying out a step-by-step practical self-guided course. The authors' Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, now in its second edition, was a ground-breaking development in the field, enabling the mindfulness-based approaches to enter the mainstream of psychological therapies. But that was written for clinicians. This new practical guide is very definitely devised for a readership who personally suffer from depression. Clearly written, simple and systematic, it has the capacity to be immensely helpful to anyone who follows the the guidance it lays out.

This book gives you a greater understanding of MBCT. It helps anyone who wishes to practice it. Very professional book and a CD.
Now MBCT teachers don't need to print a coursebook. They can use this great workbook for their clients.
