Topics covered include: Orienting the client to the skill Obtaining and using client feedback effectively Introducing simple practises Teaching clients to utilise mindfulness in everyday life Case scenarios demonstrating the skills in practice This practical, structured guide is essential for professionals already teaching or planning to teach mindfulness skills, those taking courses or workshops and for anyone interested in learning more about mindfulness.

This integrative guide for mental health practitioners who work with children underscores the importance of considering the etiology of a child's symptoms within a developmental framework before making a diagnosis.

It discusses assessment measures, the impact of divorce and the forensic/legal environment on clinical practice, recommendations for HIPAA compliance, evidence-based best practices for treating children, and the requirements for an integrated treatment approach. Woven throughout are indications for case conceptualization including consideration of a child's complete environment. Key Features: Provides an integrative approach to child psychotherapy from the perspective of healthy development Offers an alternative to the medical model Discusses key theories of child development and psychotherapy Integrates a multimodal approach that considers a child's daily environment Includes a template for organizing and implementing a successful practice Features an instructorís manual and course syllabus

Mindfulness for Two

An Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Approach to Mindfulness in Psychotherapy

ISBN: 1572246316

Category: Psychology

Page: 256

View: 9397

While most applications of mindfulness to clinical psychotherapy come from the Buddhist tradition of formal meditation practice, the approach presented in this volume comes from a very different place: from author Kelly Wilson's self-confessed inability to listen and pay attention to his clients. Wilson, one of the central figures in the exciting field of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), discovered early in his career as a therapist that his attention lapsed in therapy sessions, leaving his clients telling their troubles to someone who, for all intents and purposes, wasn't even in the room. Wilson resolved to correct this problem and made a personal commitment to remain present for his clients, to "show up" to whatever they brought to their sessions, no matter how painful, awkward, or even boring. In the process of figuring out how to accomplish this, he also observed a variety of ways in which clients themselves passed in and out of contact with the present moment, with significant consequences upon the degree to which they could effect behavior change during their sessions. This book sets forth, for the first time, Wilson's analysis of mindfulness processes as a central theme in the workings of ACT and develops an experiential technology that therapists can use both to improve their effectiveness in the therapy room and to facilitate positive change in their clients.The book includes a DVD with more than five hours of QuickTime video that shows client-therapist interactions, which illustrate the techniques presented in the book -- some that feature Kelly Wilson himself working with clients. Practicing therapists will find this volume and video to be a close second to actually attending one of Wilson's highly sought-after experiential workshops.

Dieses Buch enthält erstmals das revolutionäre Heilwissen, das sich Anthony William in seiner langjährigen, erfolgreichen Praxis als medizinisches Medium erwarb. Es zeigt die wahren Ursachen von Krankheiten, die in der Medizinwissenschaft als chronisch oder unheilbar gelten, wie beispielsweise Rheumatoide Arthritis, Multiple Sklerose, Typ-2-Diabetes, hormonelle Erkrankungen, chronisches Müdigkeitssyndrom oder Borreliose. Neben der Ursache benennt William einfache, leicht gangbare Wege der Heilung: Detox, Superfoods, Ernährungstipps und eine reinigende 28-tägige Heilkur.

Contains over 100 of the top hands-on practical worksheets and exercises for integrating CBT! Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the fastest-growing psychotherapy in the world today, largely because it has been clinically-tested and found effective for a broad range of psychiatric and psychological problems. CBT has strong clinical support from both clients and clinicians who like its collaborative process that uses practical tools and strategies for solving everyday problems. The challenge for many clinicians is finding practical ways to integrate empirically-supported therapies into everyday clinical practice with clients. While there are many outstanding books on the theory and practice of cognitive-behavioral therapies, the CBT Skills Workbook provides over 100 of the top hands-on practical worksheets and exercises to help clinicians integrate CBT into practice. The exercises and worksheets are designed to provide powerful tools that can be used in individual or group sessions and as homework assignments. An effective way to use the workbook is to have clients complete the exercises and worksheets at home and then review them together in each session. Clients learn by doing, thus these exercises are intentionally designed to be short, sweet, and easy-to-complete. This workbook contains powerful, yet practical, tools and techniques to help mental health professionals provide clients with state-of-the-art evidence-based interventions for a broad range of addiction and mental health issues and concerns. The workbook is divided into four key sections that include practical exercises and worksheets focused on client motivation, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. In a nutshell, it helps people learn how to feel better by changing what they think and do. With the explosive movement toward accountability and evidence-based treatments, the CBT Skills Workbook will help psychologists, mental health professionals, and social workers integrate evidence-based treatments and therapies into clinical practice. In short, the workbook provides an easy to follow directory of practical exercises and homework activities that are designed to help people learn ways to have the life they truly want and deserve.
