Review quote

"From Buddhist psychology, to the latest brain research, to the uses of mindfulness across a spectrum of conditions, the editors and contributors cover it all. This book offers a comprehensive, accessible, and authoritative guide to integrating mindfulness into psychotherapy. I particularly appreciate the new material on compassion and practical ethics in the second edition." - John D. Teasdale, PhD, Cambridge, United Kingdom "Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, Second Edition, weaves together the rigor of science, the wisdom of reflection, and years of clinical experience, offering a wealth of ideas and practices that have the power to transform our understanding of psychotherapy." - Shauna L. Shapiro, PhD, Santa Clara University, California, USA "At this time of dynamic exploration of the relationship between Western psychology and Buddhist mindfulness meditation practices, this second edition of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy is most welcome. A wide range of readers-therapists, psychology students, researchers, and others seeking to better understand mindfulness-will find themselves referring to this volume again and again." - Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness
