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.


Optical Waveguide Theory

RRP $84.95

This text is intended to provide an in-depth, self-contained, treatment of optical waveguide theory. We have attempted to emphasize the underlying physical processes, stressing conceptual aspects, and have developed the mathematical analysis to parallel the physical intuition. We also provide comprehensive supplementary sections both to augment any deficiencies in mathematical background and to provide a self-consistent and rigorous mathematical approach. To assist in. understanding, each chapter con- centrates principally on a single idea and is therefore comparatively short. Furthermore, over 150 problems with complete solutions are given to demonstrate applications of the theory. Accordingly, through simplicity of approach and numerous examples, this book is accessible to undergraduates. Many fundamental topics are presented here for the first time, but, more importantly, the material is brought together to give a unified treatment of basic ideas using the simplest approach possible. To achieve such a goal required a maturation of the subject, and thus the text was intentionally developed over a protracted period of the last 10 years.

The future of American STEM education is here...in every state there are thousands students that would benefit from science education if only they had the resources support systems and psychological ownership. There are brilliant young minds that could be called on to solve a myriad of world problems earning money and respect in the process. But these students dona't see science as a viable option for a life. Or they do but there are no textbooks in the classroom or the teacher is the fifth one this semester...and he is on the verge of leaving too.

If STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) careers are the future driving force of the American economy; and if only an anointed few American students choose STEM as a career path where will that leave us as a nation as we strive to compete on the global stage? Will America maintain its position as leader of the free world? Can a country that shuns the word ai??eliteai?? ever maintain its elite status? Everything we value depends on this; our national security reputation and quality of life all depend on our ability to meet the needs of future generations of American workers as they compete for jobs. Jobs that will require problem solving skills innovation creativity scientific literacy and mathematical knowledge. Jobs that will require Americans who are tops in their fields with expertise intellectual curiosity ambition and vision. This book seeks to address these problems as well as providing an historical backdrop for the discussion of STEM in American schools race and gender issues the effects of the standards movement on STEM and what good teaching looks like in urban public schools. The future is here. Will we rise to the occasion?
