Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been an effective intervention for decades, but few clinicians have discovered the powerful treatment of combining CBT with Mindfulness.
Clinical psychologist and mindfulness expert Dr. Richard Sears has created a practical, engaging skills manual that clearly defines the principles of CBT and then demonstrates steps for integrating mindfulness practices into therapy -- all drawing from the latest research. Straight-forward explanations and dozens of worksheets provide fresh insights and new tools to move therapy forward when treating stress, anxiety, panic, depression, pain, trauma, addictions, and other issues.
"Richard Sears is that rare psychologist and mindfulness trainer who bring decades of authentic training in classical meditation methods into contact with the razor's edge of our most recent research developments. Having a chance to train with Richard is a gift, and this book is like your own private session of advanced mindfulness work with a master teacher. This book has my highest recommendation." --Dennis Tirch, PhD, author of 6 books, Founding Director, The Center for Compassion Focused Therapy
"This is a treasure trove for clinicians who wish to integrate first, second and third wave cognitive-behavioral therapies in their work. Dr. Sears is a master clinician and meditation teacher who skillfully synthesized the essence of these approaches in succinct and scientifically grounded text. He also created a collection of handouts that are both engaging and simple to use. Both the handouts and the resources Dr. Sears has assembled will help clinicians and their clients effectively address many of the issues commonly brought to therapy." --Louanne Davis, PsyD, author of Meditations for Healing Trauma, clinical psychologist, certified MBSR instructor
