The past decade has witnessed a well-documented surge in interest among clinical psychologists in mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to behavior change. In this book, the leading figures in traditional cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) address questions, including: Do these approaches represent a paradigmatic shift in the field? Each chapter presents a state-of-the-art description of a specific model; a brief review of the data relevant to these assertions; and a summary of directions for future development and research. Clinicians will want to add this volume to their CBT libraries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the most fruitful aspects of the encounter between classical Buddhist knowledge and modern science has been the emergence of new therapeutic and educational approaches that integrate contemplative practice, such as mindfulness, and contemporary psychology methods, such as those of cognitive therapy. I have had the honor to engage in a deep conversation with Dr Aaron T Beck on a number of issues related to this encounter, and feel that this engagement has a real potential to making a significant contribution to the wider world. The systematic approach of this book, wherein the insights of both classical Buddhist and contemporary psychology are integrated, represents a most beneficial and powerful method of ensuring a healthy mind and heart." ?His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama "What has been missing in the midst of partisan battles between orthodox CBT therapists and enthusiastic proponents of newer acceptance/mindfulness approaches is a reasoned, scientifically grounded discourse that would help researchers and clinicians alike sort through the various claims and counter-claims. This book, skillfully conceived and edited by James Herbert and Evan Forman, provides just such a sober and open-minded appraisal of a trend that has sometimes suffered both from too much hype from one side and too sweeping a rejection by the other. This volume encourages careful consideration of both positions and can advance evidence-based psychosocial therapy both conceptually and procedurally to the benefit of all." ?From the foreword by Gerald C. Davison, PhD, University of Southern California "Herbert and Forman have compiled an outstanding collection of perspectives on the scientific and theoretical issues surrounding acceptance and mindfulness approaches within the context of cognitive behavioral therapy. Each chapter presents insightful discussions by leaders in the field, and together they provide a comprehensive and balanced overview of the most critical issues pertaining to the core premises of each approach. This is a must read for clinicians and researchers alike." ?Michelle G. Craske, PhD, Professor and Vice-Chair of the Department of Psychology, UCLA
