4.0 out of 5 stars Do not do this book alone, May 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictive Behaviors: A Clinician's Guide (Paperback)
This book provides a manualized relapse prevention program for clinicians experienced in substance abuse counseling. This program utilizes meditation techniques that also require experience teaching meditation. It would be helpful if the book included a cd with the meditations that could be copied or downloaded for a higher quality instruction. If you are trained in both addictions counseling and mindfulness meditation, I would rate this program at a 4.5 star rating (you still need to record your own cd's for home practice).

5.0 out of 5 stars Important contribution to the field of addiction medicine and recovery, February 9, 2014
By 
Twinpeaker in SF (San Francisco, CA) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Incorporating the wisdom of MBCT for depression and Kabat-Zin's MBSR and applying the principles and practices to the task of relapse prevention, this is an important, thoughtful, and wise contribution to the field of recovery and addiction medicine. This is the manual for teachers of MBRP, an evidence based treatment. As a teacher and student of MBRP, I can say that this approach has been transformative for many of the students I teach, helping them awaken to a new way of understanding the automaticity of thoughts and feelings, and how that applies to relapse. MBRP teaches people how to put some space between a trigger and an automatic reaction, allowing an opportunity for a more skillful response. MBRP is both a helpful adjunct to traditional 12-step programs, and an alternative for clients who are opposed to 12-step models of recovery. It is a secular approach, and does not promote or discourage any particular spiritual path, although many find the teachings and practices deeply spiritual.
This is the essential guide to conducting MBRP courses but is not considered sufficient in and of itself for conducting classes; clinicians interested in offering this to clients should receive certificate training in the modality.
