1 Jan 2011
Accessible and practical, this book provides a unified framework for integrating acceptance and mindfulness into cognitive-behavioral practice. The authors interweave elements of acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, and dialectical behavior therapy. They demonstrate how to conduct an assessment, develop a case formulation, and derive a flexible treatment plan for each patient. Vivid case examples and transcripts illustrate the entire process of therapy, showing how treatment can be tailored for different presenting problems and concerns. More than two dozen reproducible handouts and forms are included. This book will be important reading for psychotherapists in a range of settings, including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and clinical social workers, as well as advanced students in these areas. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses and clinical practica.
