A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook In 1990, Jon Kabat-Zinn revolutionized the way millions of people handle distressing thoughts and feelings by writing Full Catastrophe Living, the book that introduced mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) to the public for the first time. Today, A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, created by mindfulness experts Bob Stahl and Elisha Goldstein, adapt Kabat-Zinn’s groundbreaking program into an accessible workbook format. Readers turn to this book once a week for eleven weeks, gradually improving their ability to relieve intense stress and reconnect with the present. The workbook invites readers to participate in formal and informal practices and use fill-in exercises to reflect and track their progress. After each weekly session, readers can apply the techniques they learned that week into everyday life, gradually learning to replace stress-promoting habits with mindful ones. The audio CD bound with this book offers extensive and helpful supplemental material that readers can listen to anytime to receive a refresher course on MBSR techniques and useful guidance for incorporating these techniques into their days. Bob Stahl, Ph.D. founded and directs mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programs in five medical centers in the San Francisco Bay area. He teaches MBSR and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) in west Los Angeles. He is author of the audio CD series Mindful Solutions, which deals with issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, adult ADHD, and success at work. He is author of popular mindfulness and psychotherapy blogs on www. psychcentral.com and www.mentalhelp.net. He conducts workshops, radio interviews, and lectures on the therapeutic benefits of mindfulness.
