Product description


"A clear account of what MBCT is, both in its theoretical perspectives and its actual practices. Written in accessible language, it is an extraordinary achievement that will be highly valued by both participants in mindfulness classes and their teachers."Mark Williams, from the Foreword

"This fascinating book lays out, concisely, the distinctive features of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and explains fully and clearly the key theoretical and practical features of the approach… Rarely has a book encouraged me to believe that everyone could benefit by reading it and many more by practising what it describes… I constantly found myself jotting down phrases and concepts that I would like to share with the world – or at least my clients and family!" - Kathy Sleigh, Healthcare Counselling & Psychotherapy Journal, Vol. 9 No. 2, April 2009

"This is a book of great value, as a reference work and a text to be read straight through, for beginning and more advanced practitioners in MBCT and others seeking an understanding of the area, and it comes highly recommended." – Jane Hutton, Behavioral and Cognitive Psychotherapy, 39, 2011


Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is increasingly used in therapeutic practice. It encourages clients to process experience without judgment as it arises, helping them to change their relationship with challenging thoughts and feelings, and accept that, even though difficult things may happen, it is possible to work with these in new ways. This book provides a basis for understanding the key theoretical and practical features of MBCT. Focusing on a mindfulness-based cognitive therapy program that is offered in a group context to those who are vulnerable to depressive relapses, the text is divided into 30 distinctive features that characterize the approach. "Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features" provides a concise, straightforward summary for professionals and trainees in the field. Its easy-to-use format will appeal to both experienced practitioners and newcomers with an interest in MBCT.
