Overview

Bringing mindfulness techniques to your psychotherapeutic work with clients.


An integrated state of mindful awareness is crucial to achieving mental health. Daniel J. Siegel, an internationally recognized expert on mindfulness and therapy, reveals practical techniques that enable readers to harness their energies to promote healthy minds within themselves and their clients. He charts the nine integrative functions that emerge from the profoundly interconnecting circuits of the brain, including bodily regulation, attunement, emotional balance, response flexibility, fear extinction, insight, empathy, morality, and intuition.


A practical, direct-immersion, high-emotion, low-techno-speak book, The Mindful Therapist engages readers in a personal and professional journey into the ideas and process of mindful integration that lie at the heart of health and nurturing relationships.

Yet another excellent book by Dr. Daniel J. Siegel! I highly recommend this book!Having devoured Dr. Siegel's previous books for their rigorous neuroscientific explorations on the mechanisms and benefits of mindfulness,mindsight, and their relationship to interpersonal neurobiology, I eagerly anticipated a more "instructional" book on how-to-practice from Dr. Siegel. This book provides more of that instruction than any of Dan Siegel's excellent previous books. While the focus is on the cultivation of mindfulness and mindsight between therapist and client (and much more), the practice of mindfulness by anyone is the same, hence ANYONE can and will benefit from this book.Expect to learn a lot from this book, but keep in mind is is a (GOOD) challenge to read - the concepts are abstract and complex, but extremely useful and well-presented. Your brain WILL grow new synapses as you read it!Buy it, read it and apply it!
