Description

This volume examines the role of mindfulness principles and practices in a range of well-established cognitive and behavioral treatment approaches. Leading scientist-practitioners describe how their respective modalities incorporate such nontraditional themes as mindfulness, acceptance, values, spirituality, being in relationship, focusing on the present moment, and emotional deepening. Coverage includes acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, integrative behavioral couple therapy, behavioral activation, and functional analytic psychotherapy. Contributors describe their clinical methods and goals, articulate their theoretical models, and examine similarities to and differences from other approaches.


Reviews

“Addresses a new set of behavior therapies developed over ten years. The book covers nontraditional themes such as mindfulness, acceptance, values, spirituality, being in a relationship, focusing on the present moment, and emotional deepening....Novice readers can learn some basic techniques that are part of the ACT model....The book includes chapters for using ACT for specific purposes....I enjoyed reading the book. I really recommend it.”

Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter


“This excellent book provides a very readable overview of how the 'third wave' behavioral and cognitive therapies such as ACT, MBCT, and DBT are integrating the concepts of mindfulness, acceptance, the therapeutic relationship, values, spirituality, and meditation into a clinical practice....Heaving utilized some of the ideas with current clients, I would highly recommend this inspiring book to other clinicians as an aid to reflecting on their clinical practice. It is both a readable overview and a useful reference text of clinical wisdom and advances in research.”

Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling, and Psychotherapy


“Hayes et al. have produced a collection of applied research articles filled with golden nuggets of insights, research, and practice applications for a variety of common clinical issues. These scientist-practitioners continue to demonstrate that their variations of acceptance and change-based strategies have influenced in significant ways not only the traditional cognitive-behavioral based therapeutic traditions but have also—and most importantly—improved the quality of their client's lives.”

Journal of Marital and Family Therapy


“The use of acceptance and mindfulness is presented...by an impressive array of authors and researchers in numerous domains including the treatment of refractory depression, trauma, generalized anxiety disorder, eating disorders, alcohol and drug use disorders, and couples therapy.”

Journal of Trauma Practice


“An excellent introduction.”

PsycCRITIQUES


“This volume would make an excellent text for a graduate level seminar on CBT and a valued addition to the bookshelf of many practitioners regardless of their theoretical persuasion.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic


“This is an outstanding and potentially pivotal book, a unique series of therapeutic techniques emphasizing mindfulness, acceptance, values, spirituality, meditations, emotional deepening, focus on the present with an emphasis on the emerging therapeutic relationship....Hayes, Follette, and Linehan have recruited an impressive list of cutting-edge researchers and practitioners to provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art in what is being termed third generation behavior therapy....Any graduate doctorate program in psychology with a behavioral orientation wishing to insure contact with up-to-date thinking would need this book as part of its coursework. This book will be valuable to both starting therapists and those who have been in practice for many years....This book is highly valuable....The concepts and procedures developed are easily adapted to a child and adolescent population....Given the excitement within its pages and the profound impact it may have, it may represent one of the best values in books available today.”

Child & Family Behavior Therapy


“The book is a well-organized, visionary, and pragmatic presentation of multiple new concepts....This book is one not only to read but also to keep on the shelf for reopening by psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health clinicians who treat, teach, and just enjoy a good adventure of expanding the mind.”

Psychiatric Services


“...a rich resource for surveying the theoretical and clinical implications of third-wave behavior therapies....A strength of this volume lies in the compilation of related theoretical models that appear to challenge our thinking about contemporary clinical science and practice.”

The Behavior Therapist


“One of the most important treatment developments in recent years has been the theoretical and empirical elaboration of mindfulness and acceptance into evidence-based cognitive-behavioral protocols. Books on this topic, however, have typically focused either on general theory or on clinical applications to narrow segments of psychopathology. Now Hayes, Follette, and Linehan—three of the most creative thinkers in this area—have produced a volume surveying the current status of these new intervention strategies across the wide spectrum of psychopathology. Anyone seeking to remain up to date on the applications of these exciting new procedures with a variety of client problems will want to have this book close at hand.”

—David H. Barlow, PhD, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders and Department of Psychology, Boston University


“Some of today's most innovative scientist-practitioners provide an in-depth examination of the many ways that the concepts of mindfulness and acceptance are being integrated into cognitive-behavioral therapy, which hitherto has had little systematic contact with experiential therapies and Eastern philosophies. This book will be of interest to all mental health professionals concerned with enhancing therapeutic change in their patients and with furthering their own personal development. Provocative and at times very wise, this is 'must' reading for researchers and clinicians alike, inviting critical consideration of new and promising ideas and procedures. It is an appropriate text for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy, particularly within clinical psychology programs, and would serve as an excellent basis for a special-topic seminar on mindfulness and acceptance therapies.”

—Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California
