Abstract

Reviews the book, Acceptance and Mindfulness-Based Approaches to Anxiety: Conceptualization and Treatment, edited by Susan M. Orsillo and Lizabeth Roemer (see record 2005-15631-000), stating that the volume is best appreciated on three levels. These are: first, as a fresh, eye-opening way to conceptualize anxiety, anxiety disorders, and current treatments for these disorders; second, as an introductory lesson in how to work with anxious patients from an acceptance/mindfulness-based perspective; and third, as a review of the similarities and differences between acceptance/mindfulness concepts and those of more traditional psychotherapies. In addition to therapists, clinical researchers may also find this book inspiring. The authors not only sound a call for further research on acceptance and mindfulness-based approaches, but also highlight areas in more traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) that could benefit from further study.
