Before getting into my experiences with acceptance and mindfulness, I wanted to mention the specific psychotherapies and self-help resources I’ve been working with. I’m no expert in this field, but I’ve learned a lot even from my limited exposure to the key methods and practices.
I’ve become most familiar with four therapies that have been well supported by clinical evidence. Each of these has its gifted practitioners and interpreters who have made the ideas readily accessible. There are several additional training programs and self-help resources developed independently by individual practitioners that have a lot to offer.
Here are some of the most helpful websites, videos and books I’ve consulted.
1. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Full Catastrophe Living (Revised Edition): Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness (book)
2. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
