Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: the Process and Practice of Mindful Change, 2nd Edition. Steven Hayes, Kirk Strosahl & Kelly Wilson, $50.50

Since the original publication of this seminal work, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practiced approach to helping people change. This book provides the definitive statement of ACT — from conceptual and empirical foundations to clinical techniques — written by its originators. ACT is based on the idea that psychological rigidity is a root cause of a wide range of clinical problems. The authors describe effective, innovative ways to cultivate psychological flexibility by detecting and targeting six key processes: defusion, acceptance, attention to the present moment, self-awareness, values, and committed action. Sample therapeutic exercises and patient-therapist dialogues are integrated throughout.

New to This Edition:

  • Reflects tremendous advances in ACT clinical applications, theory building, and research.
  • Psychological flexibility is now the central organizing focus.
  • Expanded coverage of mindfulness, the therapeutic relationship, relational learning, and case formulation.
  • Restructured to be more clinician friendly and accessible; focuses on the moment-by-moment process of therapy.

Clinicians will want to add this volume to their CBT libraries.


Buddhist Understanding of Childhood Spirituality: the Buddha's Children. Alexander von Gontard, $29.95

In this book, Alexander von Gontard, a child psychiatrist, uses the language, thought and imagery of Buddhism to explore the spirituality of children.

The book begins by exploring the Buddha's own childhood and the 'divine child' in Buddhism, a key archetype in Jungian psychology. The author defines the spirituality and religiosity of children and adolescents and identifies manifestations of spirituality in children, such as experiences of awe and wonder, and favourable conditions for spirituality, such as silence, nature, extreme conditions and mindfulness. Drawing on his own experience working with children in therapeutic practice, von Gontard discusses the parallels between spontaneous spirituality seen in childhood and the Buddha's teachings.

Revealing how the spiritual insights and experiences of children and adolescents can uncover a deep and wise understanding of human life that is compatible with the Buddha's teachings, this book will be of particular interest to professionals and academics in psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, education and religious studies.

With more than 75 accessible exercises and practices, along with adaptations for the individual needs of a wide range of children and teens, this inspiring guidebook brings you road-tested insights and tools for:

  • Tapping the power of the imagination, play, and creativity
  • Body-based mindfulness and movement practices

  • The mindful use of technology and social media
  • Building the foundation through your own personal practice
  • “Attending” and “Befriending” — two positive responses to stress
  • Setting intentions and managing expectations of new practitioners
  • Sharing mindfulness in a formal setting including schools and workplaces
  • Extending our practice into the larger communities we share

Using its classroom-ready resources, teachers, administrators, parents, and policy makers can make the invisible visible, turning human investment in their students into the best possible learning outcomes.

The book also includes a website link with student handouts and homework assignments, making it an ideal classroom tool.

These mindfulness practices offer the opportunity to develop hardiness in the face of uncomfortable feelings that otherwise might provoke a response that could be harmful. This easy-to-use manual is designed to be used by teachers, but can also be used by any mental health provider teaching adolescents emotion regulation, stress reduction and mindfulness skills.

Mindfulness & Acceptance for Counseling College Students: Theory and Practical Applications for Intervention, Prevention & Outreach. Jacqueline Pistorello, $64.95

The college years are very stressful for many people, so it comes as little surprise that college-aged youth often suffer from diagnosable psychiatric disorders. Even among college students whose distress is not clinically diagnosable, the college years are fraught with developmental challenges that can trigger bouts of psychological suffering. In MINDFULNESS AND ACCEPTANCE FOR COUNSELING COLLEGE STUDENTS, clinical researcher Jacqueline Pistorello explores how mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches are being utilized in higher education settings around the world to treat student mental health problems like severe depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders, and/or to help students thrive in and out of the classroom.

This book offers easy-to-use programs for college counselors, therapists, instructors, administrators, and even high school counselors who are looking for tools to help high school students prepare for the transition to college. Counselors with extensive experience with mindfulness and acceptance approaches can learn new ways of adapting these approaches to interventions with college students, and counselors interested in these approaches but lacking experience can learn about these effective therapies. Finally, college administrators and staff can gain ideas for implementing mindfulness practices in various campus contexts to help promote student mental health or academic engagement.

You must embody mindfulness in order to teach it. The Mindfulness Teaching Guide offers a thorough and practical guide for mindfulness teachers and professionals, offering a systematic approach to developing the teaching methods, skills, and competencies needed to become a proficient mindfulness teacher.

Mindfulness has captured public attention like never before. From the classroom to the boardroom, everyone is trying to make present moment awareness a part of daily life.

However, many people lack the resources needed to teach mindfulness well. In this guide, you’ll learn the three essential skills of being an effective mindfulness teacher: how to guide mindfulness practice, how to explore mindful inquiry, and how to give didactic presentations. Along with teaching underlying theory, this book also offers practical options, suggestions, examples, and even reminder lists so you can swiftly put what you learn to use. The approach in this book is descriptive instead of prescriptive, offering options instead of instructions to help you develop your own style of teaching.

If you want to improve the way you teach mindfulness — no matter what kind of setting you’re in — this book is for you.

Mindfulness-Based Play-Family Therapy: Theory and Practice. Dottie Higgins-Klein, $39.50

When a child is offered a space to relax the “busy mind,” his experience is comparable to mindfulness meditation. Therapists can help children remain in this calm state — in the state of the present moment — if they have the right tools and techniques to do so. During this stillness, a child can reach a level of consciousness that is parallel to the deepened awareness that occurs during mindfulness meditation. Conducting play sessions in this stage allows for healing and progress. Not only can the symptoms of children’s pain be reduced in intensity and duration, but their self-esteem can be enhanced.

This book presents a new and comprehensive framework for helping children through play therapy within the context of the family and incorporating ideas from the practice of mindfulness. This experience-based therapeutic model respectfully derives from the best roots of traditional family therapy and play therapy modalities. Additionally, it draws from child development theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and mindfulness. Either spontaneous play or directed play can be used according to the need.
