Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators

Donald McCown, Thomas Jefferson University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA

Marc S. Micozzi, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, D.C.

The applications and use of mindfulness-based interventions in medicine, mental health care, and education have been expanding as rapidly as the empirical evidence base that is validating and recommending them. This growth has created a powerful demand for professionals who can effectively deliver these interventions, and for the training of new professionals who can enter the fold.

Ironically, while the scientific literature on mindfulness has surged, little attention has been paid to the critical who and how of mindfulness pedagogy. Teaching Mindfulness is the first in-depth treatment of the person and skills of the mindfulness teacher. It is intended as a practical guide to the landscape of teaching, to help those with a new or growing interest in mindfulness-based interventions to develop both the personal authenticity and the practical know-how that can make teaching mindfulness a highly rewarding and effective way of working with others. The detail of theory and praxis it contains can also help seasoned mindfulness practitioners and teachers to articulate and understand more clearly their own pedagogical approaches.

Engagingly written and enriched with vignettes from actual classes and individual sessions, this unique volume:

  • Places the current mindfulness-based interventions in their cultural and historical context to help clarify language use, and the integration of Eastern and Western spiritual and secular traditions
  • Offers a highly relational understanding of mindfulness practice that supports moment-by-moment work with groups and individuals
  • Provides guidance and materials for a highly experiential exploration of the reader's personal practice, embodiment, and application of mindfulness

  • Describes in detail the four essential skill sets of the mindfulness teacher

  • Proposes a comprehensive, systematic model of the intentions of teaching mindfulness as they are revealed in the mindfulness-based interventions
  • Includes sample scripts for a wide range of mindfulness practices, and an extensive resource section for continued personal and career development
  • Essential for today's practitioners and teachers of mindfulness-based interventions

Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators brings this increasingly important discipline into clearer focus, opening dialogue for physicians, clinical and health psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, life coaches, organizational development professionals, and teachers and professionals in higher education - in short, everyone with an interest in helping others find their way into the benefits of the present moment.

From the FOREWORD .

To the city dweller, the Suburban resident, and to all who only have a small piece of ground that you think worthless, wherever you may reside, should you be so fortunate as to secure this book, do not cast it aside, but study it, as it will enable you to make profitable and beautiful, that which has been an eye-sore and a menace to health, in so many instances "The Back Yard."

"If he who causes two stocks of grass to grow where one grew before is a public benefactor,"

What shall we call him, who causes vegetables to grow and flowers to bloom in places that before were unsightly and often- unhealthy, and at the same time becomes places of beauty, pleasure and pride.

I have known the compiler of this little volume for years, and it has always been his ambition to see the waste places beautified and the back yards become places of as much or more pride than the front, and with this idea in view this little volume is offered. Could you but see some of the transformations that he has wrought, you would exclaim why was this not done before. The compilations are not theoretical, but the result of practical experience and the instructions so simple that any intelligent person can follow, and get good results, as all technical terms are left out.

It is to be hoped that the efforts put forth will be the cause of much pleasure and profit to those who may. study its pages. Spend your spare moments profitably and pleasantly in following the directions herein laid down.

Modern valence bond theory and state-of-the-art methodologies<br> <br> Since the 1980s, valence bond (VB) theory has enjoyed a renaissance characterized both in the qualitative application of the theory and in the development of new methods for its computer implementation. Written by leading authorities, this is the premier reference on current VB theory and applications in a pedagogical context, perhaps the first such attempt since Pauling's The Nature of the Chemical Bond. After an introduction, A Chemist's Guide to Valence Bond Theory pre-sents a practical system that can be applied to a variety of chemical problems in a uniform manner. Concise yet comprehensive, it includes:<br> *<br> <br> A tour of some VB outputs and terminology<br> *<br> <br> An explanation of basic VB theory<br> *<br> <br> A discussion of various applications of the VB method to chemical problems, encompassing bonding problems, aromaticity and antiaromaticity, the dioxygen molecule, polyradicals, excited states, organic reactions, inorganic/organometallic reactions, photochemical reactions, and catalytic reactions<br> *<br> <br> Samples of inputs/outputs and instructions for interpreting results<br> *<br> <br> A short programmable outline for converting molecular orbital wave functions to VB structures<br> *<br> <br> A guide for performing VB calculations<br> <br> Complete with exercises and answers at the end of chapters, numerous solved problems, and a glossary of terms and symbols, this is the authoritative guide for computational chemists, chemical physicists, and research chemists in organic and organometallic/inorganic chemistry concerned with reactivity and molecular structure. It is also an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Smart Energy In The Smart City 2016

This book examines the energy dimension of the smart city from the perspective of urban planning, providing a complete overview that ranges from theoretical aspects to practical considerations and projects. In addition, it aims to illustrate how the concept of the smart city can enhance understanding of the urban system and foster new forms of management of the metropolis, including with respect to energy supply and use. Specifically, the book explores the different dimensions of the relationship between energy and the city, discusses methodological issues with a special focus on ontological approaches to sustainability, and describes practices, tools, and good examples of energy-related urban planning. The authors represent the main Italian research groups working in the field, Italy being an excellent example of a country exposed to energy problems due to, for example, vulnerability to climate change and lack of primary energy resources. This book will be valuable for students of urban planning, town planners, and researchers interested in understanding the changing nature of the city and the challenges posed by energy issues.

A Short Guide To A Happy Marriage

A marriage guide that will surely help couples. I believe that the best people in the world to accept marital advice from are those who have been successful at the art of marriage. Before contemplating marriage, one should seek advice from those who have been married twenty-five years or more and have been "happily" married at least most of that time. You can ask these couples questions such as "what is the one thing that has kept you two together all of these years?" "I didn't marry you because you were perfect. I didn't even marry you because I loved you. I married you because you gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults. And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect people got married and it was the promise that made the marriage. And when our children were growing up, it wasn't a house that protected them; and it wasn't our love that protected them - it was that promise."
