This book advances a serious consideration of how the goals and practices of psychology can be informed and enriched by Buddhist traditions that transcend the individual to consider the interconnectedness of all things, and the responsibility we have towards the other. Individualistic and psychotherapeutic applications of Buddhism in psychology are examined, followed by a bold step into the community arena, with consideration given to the intersection between community psychology and Buddhist approaches to empowerment, social change, and prevention.

"This aptly titled volume includes contributions from a range of perspectives, culminating ina well-rounded presentation. [...] Bankart's brief history of Buddhism in the West is particularly interesting, since it covers both the use and misuse of Buddhist ideas. Recommended.'"
