Mindfulness-Based Practices in Therapy: A Cultural Humility Approach
MBPT helps therapists integrate mindfulness techniques into their clinical work in a humble, respectful manner.
Eastern spirituality has exerted considerable influence on the fields of counseling and psychology through the use of mindfulness-based practices. This book serves as a practical introduction to integrating mindfulness-based practices in therapy, with a focus on assessing whether it is appropriate to use or adapt mindfulness activities to the specific cultural identity or identities of clients. The authors present an approach to integrating mindfulness in therapy that emphasizes cultural humility. By incorporating this client-centered approach, therapists will be better able to align the therapy process with clients' values, narratives about change, and therapy goals.
