Summary

Mindfulness: A Kindly Approach to Being with Cancer offers people with cancer a means to bring mindfulness and kindliness into their lives, to help them cope with the challenge of a life-threatening illness.

  • Adapts Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), an approach with a strong evidence base for people with recurrent depression, for the needs and challenges of people with cancer
  • Presents the standard eight-week course of MBCT for cancer in a flexible format that is designed to suit each listener's own particular timescale, context, and situation
  • Based on more than 15 years of program development and clinical application by the author, and the work and experience of mindfulness teachers in other cancer centers around the world
  • Provides specific practices and approaches tailored to support the different phases of a cancer experience - from diagnosis and treatment to living with uncertainty and managing life with cancer
  • Features five extended stories from people personally affected by cancer who have used mindfulness-based practices to support them in their own experience of illness, life, and treatment
