Summary

This fascinating book for mental health professionals explores emerging mindfulness and acceptance treatments for addictions of all kinds, including gambling addiction, binge eating disorder, pornography addiction, cigarette smoking, and substance abuse. In a series of articles written by leading researchers in addiction and mindfulness therapies, this book reveals the research and methodology behind a range of treatments for addiction. Edited by Steven Hayes, one of the best-known clinicians working with acceptance and mindfulness-based interventions, Mindfulness and Acceptance for Addictive Behaviorsfeatures articles by leading substance abuse and addiction researchers. Each article illuminates the mindfulness and acceptance-based treatments that work best for particular addictive behaviors, reviews empirical data, and discusses future directions for research and treatment applications. One of the articles presents the first controlled study on treating pornography addiction, an increasingly common problem that has been a challenge for therapists to treat in the past. An essential resource for mental health professionals, researchers, and students interested in the most effective treatments for addiction, this book will dramatically impact the way addictions of all kinds are viewed and addressed in therapy.
