Editorial Reviews


“My impression is that MiCBT is as much a marketing effort as a therapeutic and scientific one. If Mindfulness-Integrated CBT: Principles and Practice attracts the interest of other investigators as it deserves, it will be interesting to see how the comparative outcome data emerge and to what populations each approach will be more effective.”  (Psyccritiques, 8 August 2012)



A brilliant integration of Buddhism into CBT. It is heart-warming from my side to see the depth of change which is possible with MiCBT. The integration of Buddhism with MiCBT is incredibly skilful. The book has the capacity to benefit so many, directly both therapists and clients, and countless others indirectly.
Tenzin Chönyi (Diana Taylor), Psychotherapist and Buddhist meditation teacher, Vajrayana Institute, Sydney, Australia, author of ‘Enough! A Buddhist Approach to Finding Release From Addictive Patterns’

Bruno Cayoun is a man who practises what he preaches, and this is evident in his writing.  Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is comprehensive, clear, practical and easily accessible. Integrating sound theory (both Eastern and Western) and grounded in solid research, it gently and informatively guides the reader through its step-by-step applications. A mindful breath of fresh air for the world of therapy, it promises to enhance the lives of our clients…and ourselves. 
George W. Burns, Clinical Psychologist, Senior Adjunct Lecturer at Edith Cowan University, Australia, Director of the Milton H. Erikson Institute of Western Australia and the Hypnotherapy Centre of Western Australia, author of ‘Healing with Stories’

This book is a wonderful achievement, bringing together the best of behavioural and cognitive science with the wise insights from Buddhist teachings; a wonderful contribution to the literature. 
J. Mark G. Williams, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Wellcome Principal Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, UK, co-author of ‘Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for Depression: A new approach to preventing relapse’

Format: Paperback
Modern psychotherapy has taken a leap forward. This book outlines, in a clear, succinct yet accessible writing style, the essentials of providing a therapeutic intervention that is effective. Having practiced this model of therapy for several years after attending workshops in its use, I can directly attest to the efficacy of the approach. This book is the culmination of a number of years of practice, and theoretical development which has evolved from the mindfulness approach and created a nexus with the more western scientific schools of thought. Yet it is more than a nexus, as the title suggests, its focus is on integration between CBT and Mindfulness practice. Dr Cayoun has brought together his own personal experiences with mindfulness, a thoughtful development of a comprehensive theory, and the practical use of these in a therapeutic environment. Taken together, he has cleverly spliced the Eastern mindfulness tradition with cognitive behaviour therapy and western knowledge of the functioning of the human brain.

The book provides a clear and concise outline for the use of the therapy while explaining the important implications and theoretical underpinnings of the approach along the way. He uses a 4 stage structured programme and the explanation of this provides clear evidence of a thorough practical understanding of each aspect of the approach. Embedded within the text are numerous examples and practical suggestions relating to the way the therapy might unfold with each unique individual. The book contains case examples, as well as scientific theories, all seamlessly integrated side by side. The reader gains the feeling that the author knows what he is talking about and explains this in a manner that reaches out to any audience in a simple yet comprehensive way.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in learning more about the mind and therapy and integrating the best of Eastern Wisdom and Western science.

It is rich with information and beautifully shows how well two approaches to mind: Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation and Cognitive Behavior Therapy can be integrated together and can reinforce one another and create a therapeutic approach that is much greater than the sum of the two. His approach is simply called Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy ( MiCBT )

Not only does the book illustrate the actual clinical use and integration of the wisdom of Mindfulness Meditation and scientifically proven results of Western cognitive behavior therapy, but it contains comprehensive descriptions of the underlying general principles of meditation, behavior therapy, and some basic learning theory.

These descriptions of the underlying principles make clear the essence of these approaches and how they affect how we react and respond and therefore how we can learn to use them to create a healthier mind. By clearly explaining the underlying principles of how these approaches actually help change repetitive behaviors and thoughts, the reader is given a strong foundation in understanding what truly occurs in therapy and how to do this more effectively.

Dr Cayoun has developed his approach (Mindfulness Integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy) over many years with clients, students and colleagues at his center in Australia. This book is in part a guidebook to using this MiCBT approach with patients and individuals who are suffering with various conditions or who simply wish to learn this approach to enhance their own wellness.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Alice Shires on May 22, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book has been long awaited by many mental health professionals who have received training in Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and those who wish to know more about it.
The book represents a thorough and skilled account of a brilliantly designed hybrid of two very powerful therapeutic techniques. It has already generated a great deal of interest in Clinical Psychologists who wish to understand how Mindfulness can be integrated with existing cognitive and behavioural models to offer a new way of treating a range of mental health problems and improving well being.

The MiCBT model has strong explanatory power for a wide range of human problems and behaviour for ourselves and for our clients. The book is written in a way that enables those mental health workers with considerable knowledge and experience to reappraise and add to their knowledge and skills. Bruno's style of writing enables the reader to understand his rationale and the thinking behind the program and his use of examples illustrates the program wonderfully.

I am so pleased that the book is available for mental health professionals to access and I anticipate that MiCBT will continue to grow and establish as a powerful and invaluable therapeutic resource.
