Mindfulness Therapies

Mindfulness based therapy techniques represent a revolutionary innovation in cognitive-behavioral therapy, incorporating elements of Buddhist mindfulness meditation techniques into traditional cognitive-behavioral interventions. These techniques focus on awareness of thoughts and feelings without attachment or judgment. Examples of mindfulness-based therapies include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. The latest research indicates these treatments can be more effective than traditional talk therapy in treating a host of problems and disorders. These include depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and relationship issues, to name a few.
