Editorial Reviews

Review

"A clear account of what MBCT is, both in its theoretical perspectives and its actual practices. Written in accessible language, it is an extraordinary achievement that will be highly valued by both participants in mindfulness classes and their teachers."Mark Williams, from the Foreword

"This fascinating book lays out, concisely, the distinctive features of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and explains fully and clearly the key theoretical and practical features of the approach… Rarely has a book encouraged me to believe that everyone could benefit by reading it and many more by practising what it describes… I constantly found myself jotting down phrases and concepts that I would like to share with the world – or at least my clients and family!" - Kathy Sleigh, Healthcare Counselling & Psychotherapy Journal, Vol. 9 No. 2, April 2009

"This is a book of great value, as a reference work and a text to be read straight through, for beginning and more advanced practitioners in MBCT and others seeking an understanding of the area, and it comes highly recommended." – Jane Hutton, Behavioral and Cognitive Psychotherapy, 39, 2011

"Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression is the gold standard for anyone who wants to learn this powerful approach. The second edition brings this classic up to date, making it the state-of-the-art guide for therapists and students alike." - Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of  Emotional Intelligence

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because it was the only MBCT book for kindle and I was impressed with the sample. I have found it to be well written: thorough, yet concise.

The book can be seen as a rundown on the 8-week MBCT program as designed by Williams, Tesdale, and Segal that draws heavily from MBSR. The author breaks down the theory in part 1 and the practice in part 2.

Selected quote:

In itself, sadness is not a problem. It is an innate part of being human, but when we endeavor to avoid it by trying to "fix," manipulate or struggle with it, a passing sadness can lead to persistent unhappiness.

I found this book very easy to read and understand. I got a lot out of it doing a course on mindfulness. The book adds to the knowledge of anyone trying to get the most out of mindfulness.
