    Handbook of Mindfulness-Based Programmes: Mindfulness Interventions from Education to Health and Therapy offers the first comprehensive guide to all prominent, evidence-based mindfulness programmes available in the West.

    The rapid growth of mindfulness in the Western world has given rise to an unprecedented wave of creative mindfulness programmes, offering tailor-made mindfulness practices for school teachers, students, parents, nurses, yoga teachers, athletes, pregnant women, therapists, care-takers, coaches, organisational leaders and lawyers. This book offers an in-depth engagement with these different programmes, emphasising not only the theory and research but also the practice. Exercises and activities are provided to enable the reader to first understand the programme and then experience its unique approach and benefits.

    Handbook of Mindfulness-Based Programmes will enrich your knowledge and experience of mindfulness practice, whether you are a practitioner, researcher or simply interested in the application of mindfulness.

    Itai Ivtzan is a positive psychologist, an associate professor at Naropa University, and an honorary senior research associate at University College London. He has spent much time studying, writing books and teaching classes in the field of meditation.

    "This book is a celebration of mindfulness as a fully scientific, well-adapted system for an active life in the West. Every intervention presented here is a living proof that Mindfulness has become a prominent antidote to our Western malaise: a hyperactive, distracted and scattered mind that knows no satisfaction. As part of this burnout society, in which we are constantly everywhere and nowhere, this book, driven by both academic passion and deep compassion, signifies a landmark in our understanding of human suffering and its cure." - Shai Tubali, author of Indestructible You: Building a Self that cannot be Broken

    "Cleary written, enjoyable and mind-expanding, this book is a must-read! The chapters go well beyond providing a theoretical understanding, updating and organizing the expansive variety of mindfulness-based work with page-turning case examples and wide-ranging transformative activities that we could all begin using immediately." - Francis Kaklauskas PsyD CGP FAGPA, lead editor of Brilliant Sanity: Buddhist Approaches to Psychotherapy

    "Encyclopaedic in its range, this book performs a vitally important role. It collates and succinctly describes every significant mindfulness therapy and program, and so provides an essential resource for anyone who practices or studies mindfulness, and anyone who would like to benefit from it." - Steve Taylor Ph.D., author of The Leap, and Spiritual Science.
