The Mindful Way through Depression draws on the collective wisdom of four internationally renowned mindfulness experts, including bestselling author Jon Kabat-Zinn, to provide effective relief from the most prevalent psychological disorder. This authoritative, easy-to-use self-help program is based on methods clinically proven to reduce the recurrence of depression. Revealing the hidden psychological mechanisms that cause chronic unhappiness, the authors gently guide readers through a series of exercises designed to break the mental habits that lead to despair. Kabat-Zinn lends his calm, familiar voice to the accompanying CD of guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone looking to discover a lasting sense of inner peace. --- from the publisher

Reviews:

"A revolutionary treatment approach. For depression sufferers, this book is a truly useful guide to achieving emotional balance....I recommend this book most highly."

-Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of Emotional Intelligence

"If I could select one group of individuals for people to really pay attention to when grappling with chronic unhappiness, I could not think of a better group than these authors. Not only are they consummate scientists, but they are each personally immersed in the moment-to-moment mindfulness that they teach. This book brings together the contemplative practices of both science and insight meditation in an effective fashion that is understandable to the ordinary person—no esoteric practice or mental health background is necessary. Read it and see for yourself!"

-Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Washington

Composed by a star-studded team of scientists and practitioners, this powerful book is the best self-help title to arrive since David Burns's seminal Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy. Williams (clinical psychology & Wellcome Principal Research Fellow, Oxford Univ.), John Teasdale (fellow, British Acad. & the Acad. of Medical Sciences), and Zindel Segal (Morgan Firestone Chair in Psychotherapy, Univ. of Toronto) previously collaborated on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, a well-received text for mental health professionals. Add to the mix Jon Kabat-Zinn (medicine, emeritus, Univ. of Massachusetts Medical Sch.), a luminary in his own right (Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life), and the result is a useful lay reader's guide to incorporating mindfulness techniques in everyday life. Providing a realistic eight-week program, this wonderful guide and its accompanying CD offer invaluable practical strategies for banishing depression and regaining one's life. Highly recommended for all public and academic library collections.—Lynne Maxwell, Villanova Univ. Sch. of Law Lib., PA
