Mar 21, 2008 Myridian rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
This book very cogently describes an intervention to prevent the recurrence of depression that the authors tested using randomized controlled trials. They found that the intervention is helpful for individuals who have had two or more instances of depression. Aside from brief forays into science, the book is very accessible. If anything I thought that there were too many testimonial-style stories. The thing that I did like was the great description of how to administer the intervention, complete ...more

Lise Baltzer om: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression: A New Approach to Preventing Relapse

Her er mindfulness instruktørens bibel. Sådan sat lidt på spidsen, altså, for metoder skal selvfølgelig udvikles, opdateres og tilpasses ny evidens. "Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression" giver det fulde overblik over MBCT-programmets opbygning, indhold og rationale. Bogen indeholder desuden step-by-step anvisninger på, hvordan du - som mindfulness instruktør - instruerer det kl
I do believe CBT isn't as useful without mindful attitudes, but this approach wasn't as inspiring as I'd hoped it would be. This is the clinical practice book. There is also a self help version which is more manageable if you don't plan to facilitate groups and aren't interested in the details of the thought process behind the program. I really liked reading the research part.

In Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, the authors bring an Eastern approach to managing the increasingly common issue of depression. Just last week, an article in the news proclaimed that 1 in 10 Americans are on antidepressants , and that most of them do not seek therapy in conjunction with pharmaceutical treatment. This is unfortunate. "Antidepressants drugs do not provide a long-term cure. Their effects do not outlast their use." They can be instrumental in keeping a depressi

About half way through struggling to finish reading it, at first I was eager to learn about the combination of CBT and mindfulness, but the book feels like its a departure from CBT and embrace of eastern philosophy. Which is hard to call therapy, at least in my current position, where i answer heavily to medicaid. Hoping to finish and see it reconnect with CBT in a way that brings two ideas together.
Never finished.

The second edition of this book subtly revises the groundbreaking 2002 version. It retains its exemplary clarity and remains an essential guide for anyone wanting to teach mindfulness. The revisions mostly bring slight changes in the methodology stemming from experience, but they also fill important gaps, especially on Inquiry.
Nov 08, 2009 Shannon rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This book and daily meditation have changed my life. (And I read it for class, not because I'm depressed). Being fully present in our lives can benefit all of us, not just those who have problems with depression. Life is short and there's so much out there to enjoy so stop thinking about the future or the past and be in the moment!
There is a newer ed.

Has been on pause for a couple months and now I let it get overdue. Got to page 46; that is, through most of the history part but none of the actual stuff that can be applied. ::sigh::
