Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictive Behaviors: A Clinician's Guide
This authoritative book presents an innovative relapse prevention program that integrates mindfulness practices with evidence-based cognitive and behavioral strategies. Clinicians get essential information and materials for implementing the approach with their clients. Eight carefully structured group sessions help participants gain awareness of their own inner experiences, step out of habitual patterns of thought and behavior that can trigger relapse, and acquire concrete skills to meet the day-to-day challenges of recovery. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes detailed guidelines for facilitating each session, scripted examples of guided meditations, and more than 20 reproducible handouts. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
