|Read Book Ù The Art and Science of Mindfulness: Integrating Mindfulness into Psychology and the Helping Professions õ Drawing From Buddhist Teachings And Psychological Theory, This Book Explores Why Mindful Awareness Is Integral To The Therapeutic Healing Process And Shows Clinicians How To Connect With This Deeper Awareness It Integrates The Art And Science Of Mindfulness To Engender Greater Well Being In Both Clinicians And Their Patients Very clear and helpful review of mindfulness in clinical practice It outlined differing ways to integrate mindfulness in practice depending on the therapist and client s interest and exposure level. The book explains the art of mindfulness, but not the science Instead it asserts how certain studies show beneficial outcomes or that they may be useful which is not the same thing That this passes for science has long been a fatal flaw of many a thesis Also, in that vein, the book will be loved by many therapists because it asserts quite early that all therapies have been shown to work The Dodo Bird Verdict from Alice in Wonderland is used to emphasise the point everybody has won, so all shall have prizes There s an interesting and unintentionally pertinent analogy there It s a fairy story that will make therapists happy, but it just ain t true That all therapies work is supposedly proven by studies that show a reduction in symptoms Yet that is wholly inadequate For one thing, such studies take as gospel a patient saying that they re feeling better when they actually may simply being polite Also, a reduction in symptoms does not mean that the underlying causes of those symptoms are healed In short, it s standard PR for the helping professions , but lousy science.Interestingly, since reading the book I have discovered that there are numerous psychology studies that adhere to the Dodo Bird Verdict Some others are notably critical of it. Its very good I like Ms Shapiro I was able to spend a few minutes with her at a convention last year, and she is very engaging and sweet I wish the book wasaffordable, because I really want to add it to my collection, but can t pay those prices It s well written, informative, and helpful as a psychotherapist.
