Mindfulness In Psychotherapy: An Introduction

This is an excellent paper by Dr. Chris Mace in the Advances in Psychiatric Treatment journal. i'm grateful that Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT) came out yesterday as a short essay question in my part 2 master of psychiatry exam in HUKM. Mindfulness really WORKS! Download

‘Mindfulness’ has become a popular topic among psychological therapists. This introductory article explains what mindfulness is and how it can be developed, before exploring how it has been incorporated within psychoanalytic and cognitive–behavioural psychotherapies. These reflect general as well as specific presumed therapeutic actions. At present, variations in the way mindfulness is understood, taught and applied mean that it is too early to fully assess its potential. They demonstrate how the use of attention and awareness in therapy cuts across traditional divisions and where mindfulness in therapy is most in need of further investigation.
