"From Buddhist psychology, to the latest brain research, to the uses of mindfulness across a spectrum of conditions, the editors and contributors cover it all. This book offers a comprehensive, accessible, and authoritative guide to integrating mindfulness into psychotherapy. I particularly appreciate the new material on compassion and practical ethics in the second edition."--John D. Teasdale, PhD, Cambridge, United Kingdom "The book weaves a comprehensive narrative regarding mindfulness, its relevance for therapeutic relationships, and its application in clinical settings. It is truly valuable for clinicians who wish to introduce mindfulness concepts to help patients reduce their suffering. The book is rich with practical techniques that can be readily applied with patients, and provides specific recommendations for introducing mindfulness to different populations. An exceptional tool for clinicians."--Stuart J. Eisendrath, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco "At this time of dynamic exploration of the relationship between Western psychology and Buddhist mindfulness meditation practices, this second edition of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy is most welcome. A wide range of readers--therapists, psychology students, researchers, and others seeking to better understand mindfulness--will find themselves referring to this volume again and again."--Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love "I developed and taught a Mindfulness and Compassion practice course for social work graduate students around this book. Students benefited from the accessible, engaged, and thoughtful approaches that contributors present for both beginning and experienced practitioners. They also benefited from the exercises for developing necessary self-care."--Jania Sommers, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Instructor, University of Utah College of Social Work "Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, Second Edition, weaves together the rigor of science, the wisdom of reflection, and years of clinical experience, offering a wealth of ideas and practices that have the power to transform our understanding of psychotherapy. This is an excellent text for graduate students in clinical psychology."--Shauna L. Shapiro, PhD, Department of Counseling Psychology, Santa Clara University "Of particular interest to social workers may be the review of diverse applications of mindfulness to clinical practice....The editors of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy have successfully accomplished what they set out to do in an inviting and hopeful manner, contributing meaningfully to the psychotherapeutic literature, while hinting at an untold number of possibilities in practice and research for successive clinicians."--Smith College Studies in Social Work (on the first edition) "If the reader is new to the concept of 'mindfulness,' this book is a wonderful place to introduce himself or herself to the possibilities of mindfulness within his or her own life and therapy practice. If mindfulness is already familiar to the reader, this book is a wonderful collection of reference materials that can be easily navigated and used."--PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition) "The editors and authors of this volume effectively demonstrate the use of mindfulness meditation techniques as a viable means for addressing clinician and client issues. Not only do they provide an information-dense collection of chapters representing numerous applications of mindfulness strategies, but they also present the information in a delightful conversant style that gently emanates an embracing warmth for the reader."--Journal of Marital and Family Therapy (on the first edition)
