Mindful Movement in Psychotherapy Hardback
Many mental health clinicians--even those well acquainted with mindfulness--still view physical, body-oriented techniques as outside their scope of practice.
In this accessible book, clinical psychologist, exercise physiologist, and yoga and mindfulness teacher Paul Salmon gives therapists of any orientation the tools to use mindful movement with clients.
Salmon shows how simple practices like breathing, walking, and yoga-like stretches can help clients center their attention in the present moment with curiosity and self-acceptance.
He summarizes research on the benefits of movement for specific mental and physical health conditions and provides vivid case examples and scripts.
Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download audio recordings of 29 guided practices.
