Facilitating Mindfulness is an affordable Canadian text on the vastly growing field of mindfulness in Social Work practice. It cuts through the overwhelming noise surrounding mindful based techniques. Students will learn a holistic approach to mindfulness, which will not only give them the tools they need to become more self-aware, but also become aware of how internal and external events may be affecting their clients. This text will also give students the techniques they need to facilitate mindfulness practice with clients, either one-on-one or in groups, to gain a better understanding of the factors provoking their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
