For the first time ever, a book has been written tying mindfulness techniques to social work practice. Editor Steven Hick has compiled this collection of essays to provide a model for the use of mindfulness in social work practice with individuals, families, groups, and communities. Focused on both mindfulness interventions and the development of mindfulness within the practitioner, this book contains exercises for use by social workers themselves or with clients.
