Review

The ceaselessly creative Donald Altman, in his never-ending quest to make mindfulness practice accessible to anyone motivated to learn it, has once again broached new ground in elaborating simple useful techniques for applying mindfulness in everyday life. The Mindfulness Toolbox is a veritable wonderland of user-friendly implements of mindfulness practice, all laid out to maximize a new (and maybe not-so-new) practitioner's ability to effectively use applied mindfulness. The Mindfulness Toolbox will be a tremendous aid and benefit to all people who practice and teach mindfulness. --Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, author of Brain Lock and You Are Not Your Brain

This is a must-have book for every therapist using mindfulness approaches with clients. From the 10 'Tips' thru the 40 'Tools', Donald Altman shares his considerable wisdom, along with a sense of respect for both the client -- and the therapist. At the same time, the material is presented in a light and very usable style, from the clear outlines to the many client handouts. --Jean L. Kristeller, Ph.D., research and clinical psychologist, and developer of Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT)

In an era of high popularity for anything labeled with the word "Mindfulness", Altman has written a user-friendly and practical book that is as fun to read as it is helpful. He provides great handouts and suggestions for how to describe mindfulness to clients so that they can gain peace of mind when feeling anxious and optimism in the face of depression. Highly recommended. --John B. Arden, PhD, author of The Brain Bible

The Mindfulness Toolbox is an excellent resource for therapists and clients! The beauty of Altman's work is he translates mindfulness into achievable,realistic tools with creative language and engaging metaphors The exercises are well crafted and designed to help a person sort through their problems by focusing on one's strengths. This user friendly book also has an excellent reference section for further reading and an easy to use index to help locate information in the book.

What I find so engaging about Donald Altman's mindfulness books, culminating with The Mindfulness Toolbox, is that he takes an evidence-based approach utilizing the most cutting-edge science discoveries, and creates practical applications anyone can master to improve their daily experience of life. This book may seem at first like it was designed only for the use of therapists in treating their clients. Read more carefully, however, and you will learn, as I did, how the mindful tools are intended and written in accessible language for any of us laymen to absorb and master. A must read for those of us wanting all of the benefits a mindful approach has to offer!

I am a therapist who has used found some of the activities and concepts in this book useful with some of my clients. The book is divided into sections for anxiety, depression, stress and pain which helps me to find the pertinent pages quickly. The author has also given permission to photo copy, so I have used some pages as homework. I plan to get good use out of the book.

Format: Paperback
As a counselor, I work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, and stress reactivity that keeps them from their best lives and creates a lot of suffering. Much of this stems from the deeply held beliefs and well-worn thought patterns that unconsciously rule their lives. This week, I got a copy of The Mindfulness Toolbox, and already, I've copied 4 handouts for clients. Without having to spend a lot of time wading through pages for the gems I need, this well-organized book is TRULY a toolbox, organized by what type of issues are you addressing and what type of learner is your client. The activities are practical, try in the office and practice it at home, evidence-based gems. While working with a client who is a musician, I immediately found a musical-based activity that can help him practically work through some difficult thought patterns using a modality that is a strength for him!

Some of these activities, like the GLAD, I've been working with myself and with my children.

Donald has a gift with making mindfulness accessible, and peace possible.

I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to help others (or yourself) find relief from inner stress.

Format: Paperback
Some exercises elementary depending on one's background - however from what I've read so far, all could be very useful for self or working with others (i.e. just remembering to B-R-E-A-T-H-E, deeply is so important. Da.) The BEST part about this book is that it is structured to download FOR FREE a specific exercise to give to a client (minus the rest of the book--important reading for therapists on how to use the book - with a client, notations, how it is structured, how and which exercises to target specific needs (i.e., anxiety, depression-it addresses four main dysfunctions/issues with many exercises per each section). You do not need to 'bend the pages' to copy the book's exercise. It is set up beautifully, and, well . . . mindfully for optimal use for everyone's transformation! Should be on every therapist's book shelf or closer to the 'couch' - makes a GREAT gift for your own therapist or friend [good for non-therapists as well as ideal for licensed therapists. social workers - anyone who works with people, or their SELF, as many of us do. Is easily readable-and 'do-able' for everyone - Give a copy to your mother, significant other (great way to reconnect-bond) or leave an anonymous gift on the desk of a co-worker who needs to learn how to deal w/their self to get along with others and play nice. They will thank you for it by the changes you hopefully will see in their behavior. I bought two and gave one to my friend who is a therapist - she was elated to get it. Designer G

“Mindfulness Tools” is a rich resource for those who help individuals struggling with issues that prevent them from achieving fulfillment. While the book is intended for mental health practitioners, the lessons it contains are applicable to anyone, particularly executive coaches, who are helping others develop self-awareness and improve relations with others. Author Donald Altman has assembled a terrific tool kit that I know I will use in my coaching practice.

This is a great tool with specific handouts for clinicians to use with a variety of populations. Highly recommended for any therapist who uses mindfulness but may feel stuck with a limited number of practices
