About this item

"Sears and Chard have written the kind of book that offers guidance to complement the skills of new and experienced therapists alike. Readers are likely to use It as a valuable resource for helping trauma survivors--the kind of book one goes back to repeatedly," Paula Schnurr, Ph.D., Executive Director of the National Center for PTSD

"Drs. Sears and Chard offer us a much-needed resource on how to effectively and responsibly integrate a time-tested clinical mindfulness approach with traumatized clients. So many of the resources on mindfulness that are currently available--traditional, secular, and clinical---fall to take principles of trauma-informed care into account. These authors have risen to the task of filling a major gap in how we share mindful practices. A lovely, user---friendly resource for clinicians!" Jamie Marich, Ph.D., LPCC-S, LICDC-CS. RMT, author of Dancing Mindfulness: A Creative Path to Healing and Transformation, Trauma Made Simple, Trauma and the Twelve Steps, and EMDR Made Simple

General clinicians will, inevitably, encounter individuals with a history of trauma. While the research base on mindfulness has exploded in the last decade, its potential uses for working with trauma survivors are only just beginning to be researched. This pioneering text outlines a program for using Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), based on the authors' experience in the first randomized controlled clinical trial. It provides a thorough review of the nature of trauma, current evidence-based practices, and a practical overview of the potential applications of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy in working with PTSD

MBCT for PTSD provides solid principles, practical tools, and numerous case examples for integrating mindfulness into PTSD treatment. This book expands the range of potential treatment options and lends new hope for trauma survivors to lead more fulfilling lives. It is an invaluable text for trauma therapists looking to further their skills, mindfulness-based therapists seeking more knowledge about trauma, as well as readers interested in learning about both
