The Mindfulness Teaching Guide: Essential Skills and Competencies for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Interventions (Brandsma 2017)
You must embody mindfulness in order to teach it. The Mindfulness Teaching Guide offers a thorough and practical guide for mindfulness teachers and professionals, offering a systematic approach to developing the teaching methods, skills, and competencies needed to become a proficient mindfulness teacher.
Mindfulness has captured public attention like never before. From the classroom to the boardroom, everyone is trying to make present moment awareness a part of daily life. Likewise, more and more professionals are adopting mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) in their work, whether it’s in healthcare, education, counseling, or social services. However, many people lack the resources needed to teach mindfulness well.
In this guide, you’ll learn the three essential skills of being an effective mindfulness teacher: how to guide mindfulness practice, how to explore mindful inquiry, and how to give didactic presentations. Along with teaching underlying theory, this book also offers practical options, suggestions, examples, and even reminder lists so you can swiftly put what you learn to use. The approach in this book is descriptive instead of prescriptive, offering options instead of instructions to help you develop your own style of teaching.
If you want to improve the way you teach mindfulness—no matter what kind of setting you’re in—this book is for you.
Resources for Teaching Mindfulness: An International Handbook (McCown, Reibel, Micozzi 2017)
This master-class-in-a-book is designed to guide teachers of mindfulness-based interventions (MBI) in continuing to develop more competence while raising global standards of practice and pedagogy. Starting with the central yet elusive concept of stewardship, it then expands upon the core components of MBI pedagogy. A series of reflective essays by MBI teachers from around the world foregrounds differences and challenges in meeting participants “where they are.” Such reflections are both inspiring and thought-provoking for teachers ―wherever they are. The book also provides practical guidance and tools for adjusting teaching style and content for special populations, from chronic pain patients to trauma survivors, from health care professionals to clergy, and including many others. Detailed scripts and practices, ready to adopt and adapt, offer opportunities to explore new directions in the classroom, and to continue the life-long development of the teacher.
A Clinician's Guide to Teaching Mindfulness: The Comprehensive Session-by-Session Program for Mental Health Professionals and Health Care Providers (Wolf, Serpa 2015)
Mindfulness-based interventions have exploded in popularity due to their success in treating everything from everyday stress to more serious mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).This breakthrough book provides professionals with a comprehensive, session-by-session guide to teaching mindfulness, complete with the scripts and training materials needed to teach introductory mindfulness in a wide variety of settings, despite theoretical background.
Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators (McCown, Reibel, Micozzi 2010)
The applications and use of mindfulness-based interventions in medicine, mental health care, and education have been expanding as rapidly as the empirical evidence base that is validating and recommending them. This growth has created a powerful demand for professionals who can effectively deliver these interventions, and for the training of new professionals who can enter the fold. Ironically, while the scientific literature on mindfulness has surged, little attention has been paid to the critical who and how of mindfulness pedagogy. Teaching Mindfulness is the first in-depth treatment of the person and skills of the mindfulness teacher. It is intended as a practical guide to the landscape of teaching, to help those with a new or growing interest in mindfulness-based interventions to develop both the personal authenticity and the practical know-how that can make teaching mindfulness a highly rewarding and effective way of working with others. The detail of theory and praxis it contains can also help seasoned mindfulness practitioners and teachers to articulate and understand more clearly their own pedagogical approaches.
Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness: Practices for Safe and Transformative Healing (Treleaven 2018)
From elementary schools to psychotherapy offices, mindfulness meditation is an increasingly mainstream practice. At the same time, trauma remains a fact of life: the majority of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime, and up to 20% of us will develop posttraumatic stress. This means that anywhere mindfulness is being practiced, someone in the room is likely to be struggling with trauma. At first glance, this appears to be a good thing: trauma creates stress, and mindfulness is a proven tool for reducing it. But the reality is not so simple.
Drawing on a decade of research and clinical experience, psychotherapist and educator David Treleaven shows that mindfulness meditation―practiced without an awareness of trauma―can exacerbate symptoms of traumatic stress. Instructed to pay close, sustained attention to their inner world, survivors can experience flashbacks, dissociation, and even retraumatization. This raises a crucial question for mindfulness teachers, trauma professionals, and survivors everywhere: How can we minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits?

Purchasers get access to a companion website featuring downloadable audio recordings of the guided mindfulness practices, narrated by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams, and John Teasdale
Handbook of Ethical Foundations of Mindfulness (Stanley, Purser, Singh 2018)

It takes a modern ethical approach to the study of mindfulness, and traces contemporary mindfulness practice from solitary journey to the global whole. Noted practitioners, teachers, scholars, and other professionals lend diverse perspectives to the debate over the moral content of mindfulness and its status as religious, secular, or post-secular practice. Chapters offer new views on the roots of mindfulness in Buddhist moral teachings, ethical mindfulness in interpersonal relationships, and the necessity of ethics in mindfulness-based education and therapy. Chapters also discuss current debates concerning the ethics of mindfulness across the applied fields of education and pedagogy, business, economics, and the environment.
Practitioner's Guide to Ethics and Mindfulness-Based Interventions (Monteiro, Compson, Musten 2017)
This book focuses on the role of ethics in the application of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) and mindfulness-based programs (MBPs) in clinical practice.

Chapters also examine new, second-generation MBIs and MBPs, the result of the call for more advanced mindfulness-based practices . The book addresses the increasing popularity of mindfulness in therapeutic interventions, but stresses that it remains a new treatment methodology and in order to achieve best practice status, mindfulness interventions must offer a clear understanding of their potential and limits.

Třetí vlna v kognitivně-behaviorální terapii (Šlepecký, Praško, Kotianová, Vyskočilová 2018)
Kniha přibližuje nové přístupy, které vznikly v kognitivně-behaviorální terapii (KBT) v posledních desetiletích a bývají označovány jako třetí vlna v KBT. Ty se více zaměřují na analýzu hluboce zakořeněných vzorců uvažování a chování, jež vznikly u jedinců, kteří byli v raném dětství vystaveni škodlivému působení a u nichž v důsledku toho vznikly obtížně měnitelné způsoby uvažování a chování. Třetí vlna s sebou přinesla širokou integraci s jinými psychoterapeutickými směry, jako je gestaltterapie, existenciální psychoterapie, interpersonální psychoterapie, ego-psychologie, systemická terapie, buddhistické a jógové strategie a přístupy rodinné či narativní terapie. Její předností je navíc vysoká terapeutická efektivita ověřená klinickými studiemi.
Podrobně jsou popsány terapie zaměřená na schémata Jeffreyho E. Younga, Hayesova terapie pomocí přijetí a závazku, dialekticko-behaviorální terapie Marshy M. Linehanové a na všímavosti založená KBT. V každé kapitole jsou představena základní východiska daného směru, používané léčebné strategie, ukázky terapie a cvičení. Cílem knihy je inspirovat nejen KBT terapeuty, ale i terapeuty jiných směrů a rozšířit styl jejich práce.
