Product description

Review

"MBCT is a major achievement. Based on a coherent body of experimental work, the treatment has proven its worth in reducing the recurrence of depression and, as a consequence, changing the future prospects of numerous people whose lives are blighted by repeated episodes of this disabling condition. This second edition will be widely welcomed by practitioners; every chapter has been updated and numerous new practical aids have been added, including downloadable practice exercises and handouts. Thoroughly recommended."--David M. Clark, DPhil, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

"Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression is the gold standard for anyone who wants to learn this powerful approach. The second edition brings this classic up to date, making it the state-of-the-art guide for therapists and students alike."--Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of Emotional Intelligence

 
"I love this book. More than a book, actually, it is a trusted friend. If you are dedicated to helping vulnerable people stay well and protect themselves from future episodes of depression, you will find what you need here. The program is grounded in rigorous clinical research, sound theory, and an unwavering conviction about the possibility of learning to live each moment fully and wisely. The core building blocks from the first edition remain--step-by-step descriptions of each session, including transcripts, handouts, and rich case illustrations--but there are countless new treasures as well. The themes of many of the sessions have been refined in ways that bring the curriculum even closer to the lived experience of people struggling with recurrent depression. This book stands as an exemplar of how to integrate clinical innovation, science, and practice."--Sona Dimidjian, PhD, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder

"What began as a thoughtful new approach to treating depression over a decade ago has since changed the face of cognitive therapy. In this truly outstanding second edition, the authors offer crystal-clear instructions for teaching the MBCT program. Important new chapters have been added on embodying compassion and practicing inquiry in the teaching process. The authors review the impressive research on MBCT and offer reflections on how it actually works. Clinicians of all theoretical orientations and levels of experience will discover insights and practical skills that can have a vital impact on how they practice psychotherapy."--Christopher Germer, PhD, private practice, Arlington, Massachusetts

"Superb! The authors describe their evidence-based maintenance therapy for depression in great detail, while telling an engrossing (and well-referenced) story of how they developed their approach. Fascinating reading."--Ricardo F. Muñoz, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology, Palo Alto University

"A defining resource in the burgeoning arena of mindfulness-based therapies. The second edition incorporates new evidence from both clinical trials and neuroscientific studies of the mind, continuing the story of discovery of the mindfulness path out of chronic depression. Presented is up-to-date conceptual and clinical material that reflects the experience and wisdom of the authors, their colleagues, and the many individuals who have benefited from MBCT. As a graduate textbook for a course on either major depression or psychotherapeutic uses of meditation, this volume illustrates the theory and application of mindfulness-based approaches in an elegant and always readable manner."--Jean L. Kristeller, PhD, Department of Psychology, Indiana State University

"Warmly written, accessible, and deeply insightful. This landmark book has played a key role in making mindfulness a central concern in clinical practice. The up-to-date second edition not only summarizes the extraordinary expansion of research evidence, but also is immensely practical and filled with clinical wisdom. Important, too, is its emphasis on compassion. A 'must' for all therapists interested in mindfulness."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, Head, Mental Health Research Unit, University of Derby, United Kingdom

"The authors' descriptions of the session details and the tools used will be helpful to professionals wanting to know more about how to implement mindfulness-based therapies."
(Doody's Review Service 2013-03-01)

"A landmark book.” (on the first edition)
(Mindful Magazine 2016-08-01)

"A seminal book. Segal, Williams, and Teasdale have made a unique and enormous contribution to the field and have sparked a new generation of research in mindfulness-based approaches to emotional and physical conditions. This is a 'must read' book for anyone working in our field." (on the first edition)
(Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews 2007-01-01)

"As a major plus, the book contains many practical tools useful to initiate an MBCT program, including client handouts....The concepts discussed in this book are truly visionary." (on the first edition)
(Psychiatry: Interpersonal and Biological Processes 2003-10-01)

"Not your ordinary treatment manual for depression....A skillful and practical integration of some key elements of a 2,500-year-old mind science with 21st-century cognitive psychology." (on the first edition)
(Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy 2005-07-01)

"Readable and practical. An effective, brief group treatment for preventing depressive relapse is welcome news for patients, clinicians, and managed care companies alike." (on the first edition)
(Psychiatric Services 2005-09-01)

“A seminal work, from the clinicians who pioneered MBCT….The book is aimed primarily at those intending to train as MBCT instructors but is accessible enough for the general reader, particularly those interested in depression, psychological therapies, or mindfulness meditation. It is well written in an engaging style and the authors’ enthusiasm is evident. It is good value for money and is highly recommended.”
(International Journal of Social Psychiatry 2013-12-01)
