Practice to make a difference.

Mindfulness and Acceptance: Expanding the Cognitive-Behavioral Tradition

This volume examines a number of rapidly growing therapies that have emerged over the last decade and that share an emphasis on such non-traditional themes as mindfulness, acceptance, relationship, values, and spirituality. Leading scientist-practitioners provide detailed descriptions of their respective approaches, discussing theoretical and empirical bases as well as clinical methods and goals. Promising applications are presented for treating a variety of challenging clinical issues and problems, including depression, anxiety, couple conflict, PTSD, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Illuminated are the ways in which indirect and experiential change strategies are being integrated with established cognitive and behavioural techniques-and what this means for the future of psychotherapy research and practice.
