About this product
- DescriptionOver the last two decades, Eastern psychology has provided fertile ground for therapists, as a cornerstone, a component, or an adjunct of their work. In particular, research studies are identifying the Buddhist practice of mindfulness-a n-judgmental self-observation that promotes personal awareness-as a basis for effective interventions for a variety of disorders. The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness is a clearly written, theory-to-practice guide to this powerful therapeutic approach (and related concepts in meditation, acceptance, and compassion) and its potential for treating a range of frequently encountered psychological problems. Key features of the Handbook: * A neurobiological review of how mindfulness works. * Strategies for engaging patients in practicing mindfulness. * Tools and techniques for assessing mindfulness. * Interventions for high-profile conditions, including depression, anxiety, trauma * Special chapters on using mindfulness in oncology and chronic pain. * Interventions specific to children and elders, * Unique applications to inpatient settings. * Issues in professional training. * Appendix of exercises. The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness includes the contributions of some of the most important authors and researchers in the field of mindfulness-based interventions. It will have wide appeal among clinicians, researchers, and scholars in mental health, and its potential for application makes it an excellent reference for students and trainees.
