Mindfulness Centered Therapies
by J. David Cole and Carol Ladas-Gaskin
This therapist friendly, accessible book conveys a deep understanding of relational mindfulness and its use in therapy. Including clips from authentic sessions, the book and 2 hour instructional DVD are organized so that mindfulness skills can be easily integrated into other modes of work. Employing concepts and practices from Hakomi body-centered therapy, Internal Family Systems and Focusing, it provides exceptional tools for enlivening and enriching your practice. "This well-written book offers practical guidelines and examples of how three different but complimentary psychotherapies use mindfulness. It is an excellent contribution to this growing movement." Richard C. Schwartz www.mindfulnessbooks.com
