"This fascinating, clinically fertile, and wide-ranging work illuminates and interweaves what may well be the two most significant themes in contemporary psychotherapy: the 'discovery' that therapy is a process of transformation through relationship and the introduction into clinical work of a 2500-year-old tradition of mindful awareness. Exactly how these developments may be integrated is the question addressed by the contributors to this scholarly yet accessible volume. Their responses are by turns practical, thought provoking, and inspiring. Mindfulness and the Therapeutic Relationship will doubtless prove a valued resource for novice and seasoned clinicians alike."--David J. Wallin, PhD, private practice, Mill Valley and Albany, California
"Hick and Bien present a timely discussion at the intersection of two topics that have recently captured much-deserved attention in the psychotherapy field. Leading scholars from diverse orientations address mindfulness and the therapeutic relationship with regard to issues of definition, measurement, treatment, and training. The result is a significant contribution to the literature--one that will be greatly appreciated by clinical practitioners, researchers, graduate students, and instructors."--J. Christopher Muran, PhD, Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University, and Psychotherapy Research Program, Beth Israel Medical Center

Top Customer Reviews
The book is written for a counselor and its purpose is to explain how to react in a mindful stance with clients. I agree this purpose is 100% needed. I just got so tired of infinite itsy bits detail.
