Mindfulness and Psychotherapy
By: Christopher K Germer, Ronald D Siegel and Paul R Fulton
This practical book has given tens of thousands of clinicians and students a comprehensive introduction to mindfulness and its clinical applications.

The book describes the philosophical underpinnings of mindfulness and reviews the growing body of treatment studies and neuroscientific research. User-friendly features include illustrative case examples and practice exercises.
