The college years are among the most stressful for many people, so it comes as little surprise that college-aged youth are especially prone to suffer from diagnosable psychiatric disorders. Even among college students whose distress is not clinically diagnosable, the college years are fraught with developmental challenges that can trigger bouts of psychological suffering. Is it any wonder, then, that suicide is the second leading cause of death in this age group?InMindfulness and Acceptance for Counseling College Students, clinical researcher Jacqueline Pistorello explores how mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) are being utilized by college counseling centers around the world to treat student mental health problems like severe depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders.This book offers easy-to-use applications for college counselors, therapists, instructors, administrators, and even high school counselors who are looking for tools to help high school students prepare for the transition to college. Counselors with extensive experience with mindfulness and acceptance approaches can learn new ways of adapting these approaches to interventions with college students, and counselors interested in these approaches but lacking experience can learn about these effective therapies. Finally, college administrators and staff can gain ideas for implementing mindfulness practices in various campus contexts to help promote student mental health.In addition to chapters by Steven C. Hayes, the founder of acceptance and commitment therapy, and ACT expert Matt Boone of Cornell University, this book also contains helpful original handouts, a sample podcast, and interactive web-based materials. It is a wonderful resource for any professional who works with college students and who is interested in promoting psychological well-being.
