Right now, the science of mindfulness, as well as acceptance and compassion-focused therapies, are growing at warp speed. Clinicians are steadily presented with new treatment options for anxiety and depression that are grounded in centuries of meditation tradition and tested and honed by advanced research. It’s understandable that this rapid emergence of new methods and techniques can seem a little daunting. After years of education and many more years of practical experience, do we really want to roll up our sleeves and learn a whole new mode of therapy? Thankfully, we don’t need to begin again from scratch when we wish to work with innovations in mindfulness and self-compassion.
