Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Semple and Lee do a very good job integrating CBT with mindfulness-based approaches. Where similarities exist they are pointed out and where differences exist they are made known. Primarily aimed at practitioners, this book could also be a valuable adjunctive textbook in any graduate level psychology, psychiatry, or social work program where child- and family-focused psychotherapy are part of the curriculum. This does represent a new and exciting addition to those treatment paradigms focusing on childhood anxiety that have already received empirical support.”
—Howard A. Paul, PhD, ABPP, FAACP, in a review from the journal, Child & Family Behavior Therapy, June, 2012

“Informed by the authors’ years of personal experience and rigorous methodological development, this book provides a treatment manual that is both clinically accessible and supported by empirical clinical trials. . . . Semple and Lee’s MBCT-C manual is one of the most detailed, thorough, and eloquently written manuals in the mindfulness intervention armamentarium.”
—Joshua C. Felver, in a review for the journal, Mindfulness, October, 2011
