Overview

Bringing mindfulness techniques to your psychotherapeutic work with clients.
An integrated state of mindful awareness is crucial to achieving mental health. Daniel J. Siegel, an internationally recognized expert on mindfulness and therapy, reveals practical techniques that enable readers to harness their energies to promote healthy minds within themselves and their clients. He charts the nine integrative functions that emerge from the profoundly interconnecting circuits of the brain, including bodily regulation, attunement, emotional balance, response flexibility, fear extinction, insight, empathy, morality, and intuition.
A practical, direct-immersion, high-emotion, low-techno-speak book, The Mindful Therapist engages readers in a personal and professional journey into the ideas and process of mindful integration that lie at the heart of health and nurturing relationships.

Editorial Reviews

USABP Newsletter
“[A]n in-depth resource, encapsulating both the essence and the process of a unique, neurophysiological approach to psychotherapy.”
Metapsychology
“[Siegel is] among the most prominent of Western writers in the current literature on mindfulness and its implications for psychology…. The Mindful Therapist is an impressive integration of the objective and subjective aspects of the work of psychotherapists that makes significant contributions to the rapidly expanding literature on mindfulness in psychology and psychotherapy. And I, for one, am excited to re-read this text and explore more of Siegel's work on mindsight and interpersonal neurobiology.”
Philosophical Practice
“[T]hose of us interested in mindfulness, both for ourselves and for our clients, will find this book a vault of new discoveries…an excellent resource and training manual….Siegel has set up the exercises to benefit both therapists and their clients; this approach gives even more value to the book….[C]ould be used by couples working through problems, professors attempting to better connect with their students, employees wishing to relate to their bosses, or even just everyday people seeking to improve their relationships with those around them.”
Journal of Mental Health
“[A]n excellent synthesis of a variety of complex fields, providing space for reflection and the cultivation of the clinicians' own mindfulness skills. . . . [C]an be read by any clinician, at any stage of their career.”
Christopher K. Germer
“A brilliant look at what it means to do psychotherapy 'with the brain in mind.' Daniel Siegel's bold vision of integration—mind, brain, and relationships—has the power to heal. Take it in slowly and therapy will never seem the same again.”
Daniel Gottlieb
“In my 40 years of practice, I can count on one hand the number of books I would call seminal. After reading The Mindful Therapist, that number just increased by one. Scientifically grounded, evidence-based, compassionate, and exquisitely human, this approach will fundamentally change the way we do psychotherapy. I hope everyone who practices our craft reads this book, and I hope they read it often.”
John C. Norcross
“Dr. Dan Siegel absolutely gets it—the synthesis of psychotherapy and neuroscience—and translates it into engaging prose, pithy acronyms, and compelling practices. The Mindful Therapist is an irresistible, inspiring guide to cultivating our healing presence.”
Paul Gilbert
“The internationally renowned Dan Siegel has written a truly wonderful book on the essence and process of psychotherapy. Developing his unique neurophysiological approach to empathy, mindfulness, and change, and illuminating the importance of therapist presence, openness, attunement and resonance, Siegel writes with deep compassion and scholarly wisdom. A source of deep reflection and learning, this book is a gift to new and old therapists alike. Our understanding of the micro-skills of the therapeutic endeavor has been significantly advanced.”
