Mindfulness and yoga-based approaches as beneficial supplements to traditional mental health paradigms are well supported by empirical research. While numerous texts have examined these approaches for treatment of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, this is the first to address mindfulness and yoga-based approaches as embodied tools for helping clients reduce dysregulated, consumption-oriented behaviors. Encompassing the theoretical foundations, key practices, and comprehensive protocols of mindfulness and yoga-based approaches for the treatment of externally oriented behaviors, the text is targeted at mental health professionals who wish to learn how to incorporate these techniques into their practice.

Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene stehen Veränderungen, die in der Therapie angegangen werden sollen, oftmals ambivalent und zweifelnd gegenüber. Fehlende Gesprächsbereitschaft oder Abwehrhaltung sind die Folgen. Naar-King und Suarez erläutern anhand vieler Beispiele das Prinzip und die konkrete Umsetzung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. Es geht darum, den jungen Klienten die Diskrepanzen aufzuzeigen, die zwischen ihren eigentlichen Werten und Zielen und ihrem tatsächlichen Verhalten bestehen. Dadurch verstärkt sich der Wunsch der Jugendlichen, mit Hilfe des Therapeuten am eigenen Verhalten zu arbeiten. Die notwendigen Kommunikationsstrategien werden anschaulich im Buch vermittelt. Aus dem Inhalt: I Grundlagen:1 Einleitung. 2 Pubertät und junges Erwachsenenalter. 3 Die Grundhaltung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. 4 Personenzentrierte Beratungsqualitäten. 5 Auf Widerstand reagieren. 6 Change Talk. 7 Commitment. 8.
