Description:

Mindfulnessbased Cognitive Therapy for Cancer is a practitioner handbook which presents an eightweek MBCT for cancer course, tried and tested over ten years of clinical use, and adapted and targeted specifically for people with cancer. The experiences of people living with cancer, who use mindfulness in their everyday lives, are included to inform and inspire those working or wanting to work in the field. The intention is to enable the voices of cancer patients to influence professional practice in psychooncology and support further research into the application of mindfulness with cancer patients. MBCT for cancer has been developed out of the author's experience of teaching, evaluating, adapting and refining the course with cancer patients, and from her own practice of using mindfulness with cancer and treatment.
