This authoritative book--now revised and expanded with important clinical and research advances--presents a proven approach for helping people meet the day-to-day challenges of recovery from addiction and maximize their well-being.
Mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) integrates carefully tailored meditation practices with cognitive and behavioral skills building. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes instructions for setting up and running MBRP groups, session-by-session implementation guidelines, sample scripts, and 27 reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers can download and print the reproducible materials at the companion website, which also features audio recordings of the guided practices. A separate website for clients provides the audio files only.
