The Art and Science of Mindfulness: Integrating Mindfulness into Psychology and the Helping Professions

Shauna L. Shapiro, Linda E. Carlson

Intention is fundamental to any project, endeavor, or journey. Related to intention is the concept of mindfulness - the awareness that arises through intentionally attending to oneself and others in an open, caring, and nonjudgmental way. Drawing from Buddhist teachings and psychological theory, authors Shapiro and Carlson explore why mindful awareness is integral to the therapeutic healing process and show clinicians how to connect with this deeper awareness. This book integrates the art and science of mindfulness to engender greater well-being in both clinicians and their patients. Seen through the lens of mindfulness as a universal human capacity, this intention helps bridge the gap between therapist and patient, reminding us that we are all human beings wanting health, happiness, and freedom from suffering. This book is suitable for clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, and social workers. It is intended for health care practitioners such as nurses, physicians, and physical therapists. It is also suitable for graduate students in all of the above areas.
