This guide presents strategies for helping clients with impulsive, addictive, and self-destructive behaviors using mindfulness and modification therapy, a transdiagnostic treatment for dysregulated behavior that can be customized for each client's needs and behaviors. It integrates key principles and techniques from motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mentalization-based psychotherapy. The book compares the therapy to existing treatments and discusses the challenges of treating dysregulated behavior, the conceptualization and professional stance of mindfulness and modification therapy, basic mindfulness and modification therapy strategies, and session guidelines.
