“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
