This book presents an innovative eight-session program that has been clinically proven to bolster recovery from depression and prevent relapse. Developed by leading scientist-practitioners, and solidly grounded in current psychological research, the approach integrates cognitive therapy principles and practice into a mindfulness framework. Clinicians from any background will find vital tools to help clients maintain gains made by prior treatment and to expand the envelope of care to remission and beyond. Illustrative transcripts and a wealth of reproducible materials, including session summaries and participant forms, enhance the clinical utility of the volume. More than 35 reproducibles are also provided in a large-size format on Guilford's website for bookbuyers to download.

Dieses Buch ist ein grundlegendes Werk, welches eine völlig neue Therapie etablieren wird. In späteren Jahren wird der hier ausführlich und auch für Laien verständlich beschriebene Ansatz zum Standard-Repertoir eines jeden Psychotherapeuten gehören, mit seiner Arbeit Patienten erfolgreich helfen zu können.
Bei Sigmund Freud war es die Traumdeutung, die ihn und seine Sichtweise schlagartig weltberühmt machte. In bezug auf die kognitive Therapie der Achtsamkeit wird es dieses Werk sein.
