About the Book

Clinicians and researchers working in the field of behavioral medicine are in a unique position to help patients access a range of mindfulness and acceptance-based treatment methods for preventing disease, managing symptoms, and promoting overall health. Evidence-based mindfulness approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) can form a critical component of treatment, helping patients become active partners in improving or maintaining their health and daily functioning.

An essential resource every psychologist, psychiatrist, primary care physician, health care provider, and health educator should own, Mindfulness and Acceptance in Behavioral Medicine presents a series of chapters that feature the latest findings on the efficacy of ACT and other mindfulness therapies for specific conditions and populations and guidance for introducing these therapies to patients. The book also includes information on integrating ACT with other therapeutic approaches and offers mindfulness and self-care principles health care professionals can use themselves to avoid burnout and improve patient outcomes.

The Mindfulness and Acceptance Practica Series

As mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies gain momentum in the field of mental health, it is increasingly important for professionals to understand the full range of their applications. To keep up with the growing demand for authoritative resources on these treatments, The Mindfulness and Acceptance Practica Series was created. These edited books cover a range of evidence-based treatments, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) therapy. Incorporating new research in the field of psychology, these books are powerful tools for mental health clinicians, researchers, advanced students, and anyone interested in the growth of mindfulness and acceptance strategies.
