Mindfulness for Therapists presents an innovative eight-week mindfulness protocol designed to aid therapists—which may be worked through alone or in small groups

• Presents the first complete mindfulness program designed to improve the personal and professional well-being and effectiveness of therapists themselves
• Features an 8-week introduction to mindfulness in the form of exercises designed to help therapists develop their own meditation practice and apply it to their lives
• Integrates key research that includes the Five Facets of Mindfulness, the Three-Person-Perspectives approach, and the neurobiological foundations of mindfulness training
• Supported by online meditations and exercises for therapists


“Mindfulness in therapy is often understood as teaching patients to be more mindful in order to better cope with disorders. While this is reasonable in the context of healthcare, it does not consider the role that mindfulness can play for therapists themselves. On the one hand, teaching mindfulness to patients should be based in a therapist’s own mindfulness experience, while on the other a growing number of studies show that therapists can benefit personally and professionally from mindfulness classes. This book is very helpful for developing mindfulness as a therapist’s ‘home base’.”—Prof. Dr. Thomas Heidenreich, Hochschule Esslingen

“This is the first book supporting therapists in their personal mindfulness practice. It introduces weekly exercises in a systematic, detailed and well-structured way, with recordings to support the novice. Drawing on experience, the authors describe exactly what everybody can experience when starting to practice mindfulness, and they take the reader by the hand so he or she really feels accompanied.”—Eckhard Roediger (MD), Director of the Frankfurt Schema Therapy Institute, President of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST)
