Praise for Advances in Contemplative Psychotherapy

“While the goals of psychotherapy and contemplative practice share some important commonalities — the relief of suffering — until this volume, there was no compendium bringing these modalities together. Joe Loizzo and his colleagues have done a remarkable job in surveying this vast landscape. A must read for any clinician or provider wishing to incorporate contemplative practice into therapy.”

— Richard J. Davidson, PhD, William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Director, Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior, University of Wisconsin-Madison

“In this important volume, the authors have succeeded in deepening the current mutual embrace between psychotherapy and meditative practice. Written with clarity and featuring leading minds in both domains, it signals the emergence of a new, theory-linked contemplative psychotherapy that crosses schools and boundaries in its pursuit of real clinical deliverables.”

— Zindel Segal, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Toronto, Scarborough.

“Advances in Contemplative Psychotherapy offers the most comprehensive and authoritative overview of one of the hottest cutting edges in psychotherapy today — its merger with contemplative practice. A must-have for anyone in this field.”

— Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of Emotional Intelligence, and Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Transforms Mind, Body and Brain.
