MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention that originates in Eastern meditation traditions but is increasingly discussed and practiced in Western culture. It is usually defined as focusing one's complete attention on present-moment experiences in a nonjudgmental and accepting way. Buddhist traditions suggest that the cultivation of mindfulness through the practice of meditation reduces suffering and cultivates positive qualities, such as insight, wisdom, compassion, and equanimity. In recent years, the Western mental health community has adapted mindfulness meditation practices for use in medical and mental health settings, and several interventions based on mindfulness training are now widely available. Those with the best scientific support include mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These treatments can be applied to a wide range of problems, disorders, and populations and the evidence increasingly supports their efficacy.
Mindfulness Skills to Overcome Stress, Anxiety and Unhappiness is the first self-help book to integrate the wisdom, skills, and practices available from the four leading evidence-based mindfulness treatments (MBSR, MBCT, DBT, and ACT).
