Product description

Review

"MBCT is a major achievement. Based on a coherent body of experimental work, the treatment has proven its worth in reducing the recurrence of depression and, as a consequence, changing the future prospects of numerous people whose lives are blighted by repeated episodes of this disabling condition. This second edition will be widely welcomed by practitioners; every chapter has been updated and numerous new practical aids have been added, including downloadable practice exercises and handouts. Thoroughly recommended."--David M. Clark, DPhil, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

"Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression is the gold standard for anyone who wants to learn this powerful approach. The second edition brings this classic up to date, making it the state-of-the-art guide for therapists and students alike."--Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of Emotional Intelligence

"This book has revolutionized not only the treatment of depression but the entire field of psychotherapy, bringing mindfulness practices into the treatment of many disorders and motivating an explosion of research. This second edition provides detailed guidelines for implementing the therapy that have been refined by a decade of experience. It also describes the growing mountain of evidence in favor of mindfulness-based interventions. A 'must have' for clinicians and researchers."--Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Yale University

 

"I love this book. More than a book, actually, it is a trusted friend. If you are dedicated to helping vulnerable people stay well and protect themselves from future episodes of depression, you will find what you need here. The program is grounded in rigorous clinical research, sound theory, and an unwavering conviction about the possibility of learning to live each moment fully and wisely. The core building blocks from the first edition remain--step-by-step descriptions of each session, including transcripts, handouts, and rich case illustrations--but there are countless new treasures as well. The themes of many of the sessions have been refined in ways that bring the curriculum even closer to the lived experience of people struggling with recurrent depression. This book stands as an exemplar of how to integrate clinical innovation, science, and practice."--Sona Dimidjian, PhD, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder

"What began as a thoughtful new approach to treating depression over a decade ago has since changed the face of cognitive therapy. In this truly outstanding second edition, the authors offer crystal-clear instructions for teaching the MBCT program. Important new chapters have been added on embodying compassion and practicing inquiry in the teaching process. The authors review the impressive research on MBCT and offer reflections on how it actually works. Clinicians of all theoretical orientations and levels of experience will discover insights and practical skills that can have a vital impact on how they practice psychotherapy."--Christopher K. Germer, PhD, private practice, Arlington, Massachusetts

"Superb! The authors describe their evidence-based maintenance therapy for depression in great detail, while telling an engrossing (and well-referenced) story of how they developed their approach. Fascinating reading."--Ricardo F. Muñoz, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology, Palo Alto University

"A defining resource in the burgeoning arena of mindfulness-based therapies. The second edition incorporates new evidence from both clinical trials and neuroscientific studies of the mind, continuing the story of discovery of the mindfulness path out of chronic depression. Presented is up-to-date conceptual and clinical material that reflects the experience and wisdom of the authors, their colleagues, and the many individuals who have benefited from MBCT. As a graduate textbook for a course on either major depression or psychotherapeutic uses of meditation, this volume illustrates the theory and application of mindfulness-based approaches in an elegant and always readable manner."--Jean L. Kristeller, PhD, Department of Psychology, Indiana State University

"Warmly written, accessible, and deeply insightful. This landmark book has played a key role in making mindfulness a central concern in clinical practice. The up-to-date second edition not only summarizes the extraordinary expansion of research evidence, but also is immensely practical and filled with clinical wisdom. Important, too, is its emphasis on compassion. A 'must' for all therapists interested in mindfulness."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, Head, Mental Health Research Unit, University of Derby, United Kingdom

This book is aimed at health professionals and it describes an 8 session mindfulness based cognitive therapy group. I am a clinical psychologist and bought this book because I had to run such a group in my NHS service. This is a detailed yet written in a down-to-earth and accessible manner. Each session has a full chapter devoted to it along with an agenda for the the session and summary handouts. The biggest flaw of this book is that session 1 does NOT include 'doing and being mode' in the agenda - a major omission given that the aim of mindfulness is to step out of doing mode and pratice being mode. Therefore I adapted the first session slightly to include this topic.

This is the cornerstone of our studies in Mindfulness here in Oxford and for me it's still unsurpassed as the best book on the real nuts and bolts of Mindfulness and why it works the way it does. Zindel, Mark and John: Thank you for the gift of this book.

This is the second edition of a seminal psychology text book. It describes how the ancient Buddhist meditative practice of Mindfulness was integrated in the clinical treatment of chronic depression. In the process it illuminates how depression can become chronic and how specific aspects of mindfulness can contribute to its resolution.
The book is also a very detailed guide on how to set up and run a group for the mindfulness based cognitive treatment of chronic depression and it provides a wealth of great resources including handouts and audio recordings.
It is written in a crystal clear style and manages to convey complex ideas and research findings in a concise and understandable manner.
I credit these authors with spreading the word for Mindulness meditation within NHS mental health services to a level that would have been unimaginable a few years ago and for starting a veritable revolution, not just in the treatment of depression, but of every other mental health problem known to man. For this I salute them!

This book has provided friendly, but academically rigorous, guidance on delivering the NICE recommended Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course. Teaching points for each week are clearly explained with examples of how these may arise in the course of the group reflections during the sessions. There is extra guidance in this edition on the skill of Enquiry, and on the All-Day Session during the course, so it is well worth buying as an update to the first edition. Rich in depth and detail.
