"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, University of Washington, USA
"In summary, this workbook is highly recommended to anyone who is interested in MBCT for self-improvement or self-help in coping with depression, as well as to mental health professionals who want to learn mindfulness skills for personal enhancement or for teaching their own patients. I have now incorporated this workbook as a companion resource into my own practice of cognitive-behavioural therapy. My daily practice of mindfulness skills has also strengthened my personal ability to develop moment-to-moment case conceptualizations for my patient’s problems during each therapeutic encounter." - International Journal of Social Psychiatry
