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 a 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. In every chapter, the authors describe their clinical methods and goals, articulate their theoretical models, and examine similarities to and differences from other approaches both inside and outside behavior therapy.

Industry Reviews

"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, USA

"An excellent compilation of many innovative techniques in cognitive-behavioral therapy. Very useful for cognitive-behavioral and other kinds of therapists." - Albert Ellis, PhD, Albert Ellis Institute, USA

"This book may appeal especially to mental health professionals who are interested in alternative methods for helping patients with problems that may not be solved with more well-known methods." - Mark P. Mulligan and Brian J Mistler, British Journal of Guidance and Counselling
