A major milestone! April 23 2012
By Tom Pedulla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a long-time meditator and practicing psychotherapist, I love the way this book deepens the connection between the two traditions. By illuminating the role of wisdom and compassion, it truly advances the mindfulness conversation, taking us right to the heart of where Buddhist and Western psychologies intersect. It's a practical, readable, expertly edited volume, and features significant contributions from an all-star lineup of clinicians, scientists and scholars, including Marsha Linehan, Daniel Siegel, Tara Brach, Alan Marlatt, Richard Davidson, Paul Gilbert, Barbara Frederickson, Robert Sternberg, John Makransky, and Andrew Olendzki. Some chapters are archival, such the the ones by Marsha Linehan and Alan Marlatt, where they describe the origins of their well-known and highly regarded treatment approaches. Others are visionary, such as the seminal contributions by the Buddhist teachers. I was touched by the warmth of the writing and the remarkable scholarship throughout the book -- a true meeting of heart and mind. In my opinion, this book will be an important resource to mental health professionals and students for many years to come. -- Tom Pedulla, LICSW

The Real Deal Nov. 2 2012
By mindfulpsyche - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Germer and Siegel have outdone themselves with this second, decisive textbook on Mindfulness and Psychotherapy. This book is an antidote to the saturation of "McMindfulness" books that have unfortunately populated the psychotherapy marketplace since publication of their first seminal textbook in 2005. By choosing to focus on the cultivation of compassion and wisdom--the two wings of enlightenment--they have relegated mindfulness back to its rightful place as a tool for cultivating these qualities rather than an end in itself. This allows their book to successfully elucidate the "deepening in" that has been so needed on the clinical use of mindfulness. The beauty of this book is it features excellent chapters written by the crème de la crème clinicians and researchers who have long been involved in studying neuroscience of meditation and/or delivery of mindfulness and heartfulness interventions in mental health settings. Many of the contributors are IMP faculty, most are serious, longtime meditation practitioners, and there are even a few dharma teachers. The style of the book is largely secular and focused on offering information with a plethora of citations on the latest research. As in their first book clinical interventions are offered for patients and clinicians, and there is a wonderful chapter on cultivating wisdom through ethical conduct targeted specifically for psychotherapists. I was happy to see the inclusion of chapters on trauma, substance use disorders, and relationships, along with the usual topics of depression, anxiety and personality disorders. Bravo!

I've only just started reading, but already I'm impressed and learning so much. Solid on research, solid on practical wisdom, solid on theory and what a list of heavy hitter contributors!

This comes from an academic book that is dedicated to modern Buddhist studies. The chapters are academic and not easy reading, proceed carefully if you are thinking of buying it. Good material though.

Finally I read a book about psychotherapy that has a human approach, based on love, wisdom and compassion. It is about connecting with your patient. Great book for psychotherapists with a loving approach
