About this series
Mindfulness-based therapy is one of the fastest evolving treatment approaches in psychology and related fields. It has been used to treat many forms of psychological and psychiatric distress and medical conditions as well as to foster health and wellness. Early empirical studies and meta-analyses of current research suggest that mindfulness-based therapies are effective and long lasting, but much more data from research and training studies are needed to fully understand its nature and effective practice. The Mindfulness in Behavioral Health series aims to foster this understanding by aggregating this knowledge in a series of high-quality books that will encourage and enhance dialogue among clinicians, researchers, theorists, philosophers and practitioners in the fields of psychology, medicine, social work, counseling and allied disciplines. The books in the series are appropriate for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses. Each book targets a core audience, but also appeals to others interested in behavior change and personal transformation.
