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.
The series of articles written by leading researchers in addiction and mindfulness therapies introduce the latest research on using acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
