New or Used: $58.05
The field of psychology is witnessing the emergence and rapid scientific advancement of "third-wave" behaviour therapies, such as dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). The efficacy of third-wave behaviour and cognitive therapies has been demonstrated empirically across a wide range of clinical populations, including adults suffering with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, poly-substance use, thought disorders, and chronic illness. As acceptance- and mindfulness-based therapies continue to gain momentum and empirical support within mainstream psychology, it is essential to examine the adaptability and effectiveness of these approaches for children and adolescents.This edited book will summarize the diverse ways in which the third-wave therapies have been adapted for young people and their families. Chapters will summarize recent empirical advances as well as pragmatic issues related to acceptance and mindfulness applied to children and adolescents. In each chapter in the two applied sections, readers will be given practical clinical guidance that will show how to apply these methods.

Reviews

"This groundbreaking volume is an important step to developing acceptance and mindfulness treatments for children and adolescents. The book highlights the many conceptual and practical challenges in extending this approach from adults to children and families. Chapters present leading-edge coverage of a range of child problems and contexts and include many rich examples of how these approaches can be developed and tested. This book will be of high interest to practitioners and students from a wide range of disciplines who wish to expand their work in new and creative ways. By grounding the development and testing of acceptance and mindfulness treatments in empirical science, there is great potential to improve on current approaches to child and family treatments and more broadly to influence cultural change." --Eric J. Mash, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Calgary "Greco and Hayes' innovative book on acceptance and mindfulness treatments for children and adolescents is an invaluable new resource for students and faculty. Readers will appreciate the broad coverage and creative applications of acceptance and mindfulness treatments in specialized populations (e.g., anxiety disorders, chronic pain, etc.), and settings (e.g., primary care and schools). This book provides a foundation for practice and research in an important new area." --Dennis Drotar, PhD, professor of pediatrics and director of the Center for the Promotion of Adherence and Self-Management in the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center "For the reader interested in acceptance and mindfulness in children and adolescents, this book is the definitive work on what is happening now and what is on the horizon." --Bruce F. Chorpita, PhD, professor of clinical psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Modular Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Childhood Anxiety Disorders "This is an absolutely outstanding book on applications of acceptance and mindfulness treatments to physical and mental health problems of children and adolescents. Impressive in its scope and the quality of the contributors, the book provides a broad, comprehensive, and cutting-edge examination of acceptance and mindfulness treatments with children and adolescents. The material in the book is presented in a clear, comprehensive manner, with excellent references and follow-up sources provided. Especially of interest are the applications of acceptance and mindfulness treatments to specific populations (e.g., children with anxiety, externalizing disorders, chronic pain, etc.), as well as to broad social contexts (e.g., parents, schools, primary care settings). Overall, this unique book provides excellent coverage of key issues and will be an important and valuable resource for today's child health professionals. This book is a "must read" for professionals in child health and mental heath who wish to understand and use mindfulness treatments in clinical research or practice." --Annette M.
