Over the last two decades, Eastern thinking has provided a rich counterpart to traditional conceptualizations of psychotherapy. Of central importance, the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, producing a non-judgmental state of self-observation, has served as the inspiration for newly effective interventions. The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness offers professionals a welcome perspective on this pivotal concept and the ways that it can be used. A clearly written, up-to-date review and theory-to-practice guide, this volume explores the role of mindfulness (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: (1) A neurobiological review of how mindfulness works. (2) Strategies for engaging patients in practicing mindfulness. (3) Tools and techniques for assessing mindfulness. (4) Interventions for high-profile conditions, including depression, anxiety, trauma. (5) Special chapters on using mindfulness in oncology and chronic pain. (6) Interventions specific to children and elders. (7) Unique applications to inpatient settings. (8) Issues in professional training. (9) Appendix of exercises. The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness features some of?the leading researchers in the field as chapter authors,?and will have wide appeal among clinicians, researchers, and scholars in mental health. Its potential for application makes it an excellent reference for students and trainees.?
