Product description

Review

"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. I feel a thousand times better today than ever before. Like anyone else, I still get sad and anxious sometimes, but it happens much less frequently and I'm better equipped to deal with it. I definitely plan to continue practicing mindfulness for the long term."--Alain K.

This i an excellent introduction into building a mindfulness practise into your life.
The reader is taken on a logical progression through exercises, anecdotes and most importantly, accompanying meditations.
I found the audio content particularly engaging and highly recommend that people also check out John Teasdale's other content on mindful org.

This book is fantastic, I've suffered from depression and anxiety for over 10 years, and this is the first time anything has had any impact on the anxiety and panic attacks. If you are really struggling with these issues I recommend this book but as it says at the front, take off the deadlines! There are exercises to do each week, but when you are feeling low, just do them at your own pace, till you are ready to move on to the next set, they still help.

The CD that comes with the book is an MP3 CD, this is mentioned in the description but unless you have a new player, it won't play on regular/older CD players. You can put the disc that comes with the book on to your computer and play them that way or the book also links to a website where you can download the tracks to your computer or other portable device, so you can still have access to them.

There is a particularly useful track on the CD for 'Sitting with Difficult emotions', and as someone who is recently bereaved this book and meditations that come with it REALLY help.

Superb book, I took ages to buy it given the cost, but 'If the drugs don't work' as the song says, and you or someone you know is struggling, get this book, it could change your life!!

Get this book if you are feeling stressed and don't want medication, just to learn ways to relax and look at life in a different way. Even the simplest of things it suggests make massive differences.

I highly recommend it and wish it had been around 10 years ago!

Do not buy the kindle version as the vital 14 meditation audio files do not come with it. No-one at Amazon could help despite spending nearly 2 hours online chat and at least 4 or 5 different customer service reps who each spoke to on the phone and none of them had been told correctly by each previous rep what the issue was. I gave up in despair! Complete waste of money.

It would appear that although the advertised product notes includes CD. This is in fact not the case with the e book. I live abroad and ordered this book. After repeated enquirers as to CD download. I was advised to look for reference within the book. This reference requested I write( not email) the publishers directly to ask for permission the listen to the CD content. It's not clear or efficient that this is the case on purchase. However amozon has been very clear to only invoice for the actual book. Very misleading to customers. Buy this book direct from publishers.

The workbook itself is good, it was well packed & in pristine condition. Only small issue that isn't mentioned in the description, is that the author recommends you read another book on mindfulness before starting the workbook... Have purchased that now.

I love this workbook. I did a MBSR course 18 months ago but struggled to maintain practice after that and wanted a framework to restart again. The simple combination of the audio tracks, succinct explanations and brief written exercises works well. The more detailed "mindful way through depression" is a good companion to this one, and I think you may be more likely to stick to the programme if you have a fuller understanding of its benefits. Whatevercthe cause of your depression or anxiety, this book can help you recover and develop greater resilience in the future.

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.
