Livro do Mês: Mindfulness


Como todos os livros da coleção, o livro do mês de julho – Mindfulness – apresenta-se como um guia prático para profissionais, resumindo de forma sucinta as raízes históricas do mindfulness, as diferentes variantes, modelos e abordagens antes de incidir sobra a avaliação e tratamento.

Como é referido no prefácio, este título destina-se a quem tem curiosidade em conhecer as raízes e as práticas do mindfulness e as orientações da ciência atual e das aplicações clínicas.

Nesta obra o leitor consegue encontrar, por exemplo, os modelos base do mindfulness, o modelo de redução do stress de onde nascem os restantes [Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)], o modelo que tem como base a terapia cognitivo comportamental [Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)] ou o modelo de abordagem a pacientes que completam o tratamento de abuso de substâncias [Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)] com uma descrição do formato, número de horas e sessões que fazem parte de cada uma.

É possível ainda conhecer outras formas de conceber a experiência do mindfulness com a incorporação de imagens, poesia, fábulas, metáforas, pequenas histórias, etc., entendê-la de uma forma mais ou menos formal, com sessões de diferentes estruturas (individuais, de grupo, etc.) e adaptadas aos participantes.
