A new take on therapeutic mindfulness with specific applications to troubled and delinquent youth is the focus of this innovative text. It introduces Family Mode Deactivation Therapy (FMDT) and its core concepts and methodologies, differentiating it from other cognitive and mindfulness therapies for adolescents with problem behaviors and comorbid conditions. Step by step applications of FMDT from case conceptualization to assessment and treatment are featured, with detailed case studies demonstrating its effectiveness in treating mood disorders, aggressive behavior and trauma and guidelines for its use with abusive families and other complex cases. The book's depth of clinical detail and appendix of therapist tools make it especially practical.
Included in the coverage:
- A comparison of MDT with other cognitive approaches.
- The empirical status of MDT.
- Mindfulness in MDT process, and in the treatment room.
- FMDT and sexual offender youth.
- MDT and mindfulness in the context of trauma.
- Treating the "untreatable": FMDT and challenging populations.
While Treating Adolescents with Family-Based Mindfulness is immediately useful to practicing psychotherapists, it should also be of interest to other professionals with a role in adolescent health care, such as policymakers, social workers, supervisors, juvenile corrections and youth center personnel and students and researchers.
The six-week mindfulness plan that will change your life.
Take a break from your mind and step into the present moment with Mindfulness for Life.
Mindfulness is more than a set of tools to help manage the stresses of life; it's also about enhancing your overall wellbeing. In Mindfulness for Life, mindfulness teacher Oli Doyle shows you how living in the present moment can help in all areas of your life, including work, relationships, family life, creativity, memory and decision-making. Unlike many mindfulness books, Oli deconstructs the practice into everyday language. The easy-to-follow plan is broken down into six-week segments, with each week focused on a basic mindfulness principle. This book is also accompanied by daily online exercises to help your mind work more effectively and build your confidence.
About the Author
Oli first started practicing mindfulness in 2003, and all he could find were books by the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist writers. Like many do, he found the task of putting those words into practice incredibly difficult, so he set about deconstructing this practice of mindfulness and translating the experience into everyday language. He now teaches mindfulness workshops and is the author of Mindfulness Plain & Simple.
