The essential guide to MiCBT for therapists working in clinical settings
The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapyoffers therapists working in clinical settings a practical set of evidence-based techniques derived from mindfulness (vipassana) training and the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. The increasing popularity of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy (MiCBT) is principally attributed to its transdiagnostic applications. It offers novel tools that address a broad range of psychological disorders both acute and chronic, including those with complex comorbidities, and helps prevent relapse.
The authoritative guide to this unique approach includes:
- A clear explanation of MiCBT’s origins and development, structure and content, scientific underpinnings and supporting empirical evidence
- A comprehensive guide to the 10-session MiCBT program for groups and individual clients that includes worksheets and handouts for each session and suggestions to overcome common difficulties
- A presentation of the research and practical experience of the authors, noted experts in the field of MiCBT
Written for mental health therapists working with groups and individual clients, The Clinical Handbook of Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy offers an effective guide for implementing the principles of MiCBT within their professional practice.
