Overview

Though a number of books have explored the benefits for psychotherapy clients of learning and practicing mindfulness—an individual’s awareness of his own body’s functions and feelings—this is the first volume to focus specifically on how therapists’ own mindfulness practice can deepen the therapeutic relationship. In chapters that blend theory, empirical data, and clinical wisdom, leading proponents of different treatment approaches—including behavioral, psychodynamic, and family system perspectives—illustrate a variety of ways that mindfulness skills can complement standard techniques and improve outcomes by cultivating empathy and strengthening the relationship between therapists and clients. The book also presents practical strategies for integrating mindfulness into teaching and clinical training.

Aunque varios libros han explorado los beneficios para clientes de la psicoterapia de aprender y practicar el mindfulness—la conciencia de un individuo de las funciones de su propio cuerpo y sus sentimientos—este es el primer volumen que se enfoca específicamente en cómo la práctica del mindfulness entre los propios terapeutas puede estrechar la relación terapéutica. En capítulos que mezclan la teoría, los datos empíricos y el conocimiento clínico, partidarios de diferentes enfoques de tratamiento—incluyendo perspectivas de comportamiento, psicodinámica y sistemas de terapia familiar—muestran una variedad de maneras en las cuales los principios del mindfulness pueden complementar técnicas estándares y mejorar resultados a través de cultivar la empatía e intensificar la relación entre terapeutas y clientes. El libro presenta también estrategias prácticas para integrar el mindfulness en la enseñanza y en el entrenamiento clínico.
