Mindfulness Based Clinical Interventions
By John Briere, PHD
Buddhist Mindfulness practices reflect a 2,500 year old model for the remediation of psychological suffering. Much more recently, Western psychology has developed techniques for use in clinical interventions. John describes the Buddhist concept of mindfulness and teaches us ways mindfulness and compassion can be helpful in psychotherapy and clinical interventions.
