Product Description

Review

“Teaching Mindfulness as a whole is divided into three parts, each one focusing on one of the three central questions with respect to teaching mindfulness: Why, who, and how. … For anyone looking for information, help, guidance, or support in teaching mindfulness in pretty much any setting, this book is an absolute must. I certainly will be referring to it and mining it for years to come.” (Leslie C. Miller, Philosophical Practice, Vol. 10 (2), July, 2015)

“This book describes the basic skills of mindfulness for professionals … . the book is ‘most accessible to clinicians, such as physicians, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and others, as well as to clergy and educators.’ … This helpful book is easy to read and practical … . The use of mindfulness is very popular and clients can benefit greatly. … passion for this art is clearly communicated in this book, which really is its strength.” (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)

“Teaching Mindfulness offers a coherent, thorough, and genuine text on the topic, maintaining both the pragmatism and clarity that is required for a professional … . I recommend this book be read by anyone with an interest in teaching mindfulness formally or informally, novice or expert. … What it ends up being is a jewel in the young, turbulent waters of Western mindfulness prac

tice and a vital and glowingly genuine contribution to the literature as a whole.” (Joshua C. Felver-Gant, Mindfulness, July, 2010)

“The purpose is to introduce healthcare practitioners and other giving professionals to the practice and teaching of mindfulness. … It is written for healthcare practitioners as well as counselors, nurses, therapists, clergy, and educators. It is also appropriate for individuals, such as coaches like myself, who have an established interest in mindfulness interventions. … I found this book to be a valuable resource and a tool that I can use to take the next steps in increasing my knowledge and capabilities.” (Howard A. Fox, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2011)

From the Back Cover

The applications and use of mindfulness-based interventions in medicine, mental health care, and education have been expanding as rapidly as the empirical evidence base that is validating and recommending them. This growth has created a powerful demand for professionals who can effectively deliver these interventions, and for the training of new professionals who can enter the fold.

Ironically, while the scientific literature on mindfulness has surged, little attention has been paid to the critical who and how of mindfulness pedagogy. Teaching Mindfulness is the first in-depth treatment of the person and skills of the mindfulness teacher. It is intended as a practical guide to the landscape of teaching, to help those with a new or growing interest in mindfulness-based interventions to develop both the personal authenticity and the practical know-how that can make teaching mindfulness a highly rewarding and effective way of working with others. The detail of theory and praxis it contains can also help seasoned mindfulness practitioners and teachers to articulate and understand more clearly their own pedagogical approaches.

Engagingly written and enriched with vignettes from actual classes and individual sessions, this unique volume:

  • Places the current mindfulness-based interventions in their cultural and historical context to help clarify language use, and the integration of Eastern and Western spiritual and secular

traditio

ns

  • Offers a highly relational understanding of mindfulness practice that supports moment-by-moment work with groups and individuals
  • Provides guidance and materials for a highly experiential exploration of the reader's personal practice, embodiment, and application of mindfulness
    • Describes in detail the four essential skill sets of the mindfulness teacher

    • Proposes a comprehensive, systematic model of the intentions of teaching mindfulness as they are revealed in the mindfulness-based interventions
    • Includes sample scripts for a wide range of mindfulness practices, and an extensive resource section for continued personal and career development
    • Essential for today's practitioners and teachers of mindfulness-based interventions

    Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators brings this increasingly important discipline into clearer focus, opening dialogue for physicians, clinical and health psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, life coaches, organizational development professionals, and teachers and professionals in higher education, in short, everyone with an interest in helping others find their way into th

    e benefits of the present moment.

    I have started to give mindfulness classes at work as a psychiatrist quite recently and wanted to buy this book to update and expand my knowledge of teaching mindfulness. It has been an excellent purchase! It is a very thorough presentation of the subject and even as a moderately compact size can fit extreme amount of information in it. It is slow to read because of that, maybe more a textbook kind of book, but very necessary and welcome as such. Recommend it to all professionals who practise in a teaching mindfulness related field and is worth it's somewhat high price!

    This is the course book for my Mindfulness teacher training, so I approached it with some trepidation as it looks very academic. However, the more I read the more I am enjoying it as well as learning from it.

    This book has been an excellent support to the structure and teaching of mindfulness. It includes scripts for all the main mindfulness practices which can be a source of inspiration or read verbatim to create recorded practices for students. There is considerable background information and research material which emphasises the benefits of the practice.

    This is a valuable and essential resource for all instructors and teachers of instructors of mindfulness.
    The (inevitable) academic and americanisation of style and language is challenging. However, the consistency in integrating theory and practise throughout the text, brings rewards for those who persevere. Highly recommended.
