Mindfulness meditation can help therapists be more fully present, engaged, and cognizant of process in the therapeutic encounter. In addition, mindfulness can help both therapists and clients develop the skills, inner capacities, and embodied understandings needed to respond effectively to challenges in therapy – and in life.
In Mindfulness Meditation in Psychotherapy, therapist and mindfulness trainer, Steven Alper, presents the mindfulness pyramid model, an integrated, holistic, and multi-dimensional guide to incorporating mindfulness in psychotherapy. This model helps to demystify mindfulness and clarify the richness, depth, and healing power of this practice for both the therapist and the therapeutic relationship and process. The book also offers helpful guidance and practical advice for explicitly teaching mindfulness practices to clients when appropriate.

"Steve Alper has given the world a remarkable synthesis that will be profoundly beneficial for therapists both personally and professionally if engaged in wholeheartedly as a way of being. How could their clients not benefit as well?”
