Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Full Catastrophe Living”: Doctors, Patients and People

“In mindfulness-based programs people learn to face their life problems and develop personalized strategies for working with them rather than simply giving themselves over to “experts” who are supposed to just “fix them” or make their problems magically disappear. Such programs are vehicles in which people can work to be healthier and more resilient, change their beliefs about what they are capable of doing, and learn to relax and cope more effectively with life stress. At the same time they can work at changing their lifestyles in key ways that might directly effect their health and physical well-being. Perhaps the most important step they can take in such programs is to expand the way they see themselves and their relationship to their life and the world.”
