4.0 out of 5 stars Clear presentation, 3 May 2010
If you are a therapist or nurse interested in mindfulness-based approaches this will give you a clear and concise overview of the elements involved in a CBT related mindfulness intervention namely MBCT. I recomend it to any therapist wanting a quick read and introduction to the concept of mindfulness applied as intervention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joanna reveals the Truth, 13 Dec 2009
Essential reading!

I am a third year student of mental health nursing and I have read widely. I wish all mental health professionals could read this book (perhaps students and practitioners of psychiatry since the often prescribe these drugs). As the titles of this series of books suggest it gets straight to the core by means of straight talking. It is by no means mainstream thinking but who needs to be popular when speaking the truth?

If this doesn't convince you about the nature of psychiatric drugs I suggest you read Joannas "The Myth of the Chemical Cure".

As Joanna rightly points out drugs will have a place for some people experiencing emotional distress, but they certainly have the right to know what these drugs do and not do for them.
