Clinical Handbook Of Mindfulness

The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy offers therapists working in clinical settings a practical set of evidence-based techniques derived from mindfulness (vipassana) training and the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. The increasing popularity of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy (MiCBT) is principally attributed to its transdiagnostic applications. It offers novel tools that address a broad range of psychological disorders both acute and chronic, including those with complex comorbidities, and helps prevent relapse.

In the past three decades, an exponential increase has occurred in the research and theorising on mindfulness, coupled with a growing demand for and application of mindfulness interventions by practitioners, in clinical and nonclinical settings (e.g., Kabat-Zinn, 2009; Langer & Ngnoumen, 2014). Mindfulness is often associated with positive psychology and considered a primary facet of psychological well-being (Brown, Ryan, & Creswell, 2007). At the same time, the research provides consistent evidence attesting to the effectiveness of mindfulness interventions in lessening several physical and psychological conditions (Baer, 2003; Grossman et al., 2004).

The literature on mindfulness has been dominated by the two leading schools of thought: one advanced by Kabat-Zinn and his associates (e.g., Kabat-Zinn, 2003), which draws on Buddhist meditative practices and is often labeled as an Eastern approach to mindfulness, and the other developed by Langer and her colleagues (e.g., Langer 1989), which is and considered a Western approach to mindfulness. We aim, in this chapter, to offer an overview of mindfulness scholarship and interventions by examining both approaches to mindfulness. The chapter discusses the definitions, mechanisms and components of mindfulness, as these are conceptualised by the two approaches. We also briefly review their measurement tools and examine their respective interventions and outcomes.

This empirically robust resource examines multiple ways mindfulness can be harnessed to support self-regulation, in part as a real-world component of therapy. Its authoritative coverage approaches complex mind/brain connections from neuroscience, cognitive, personality, social, clinical, and Buddhist perspectives, both within and outside traditional meditation practice. In domains such as letting go of harmful habits and addictions, dealing with depression and anxiety, regulating emotions, and training cognitive function, contributors show how mindfulness-based interventions encourage and inspire change. In addition to scientific coverage, experts translate their methods and findings on mindfulness mechanisms in terms that are accessible to students and clinicians. 041b061a72
