Résumé :

"She shares with us her gold - the conception, trial and error implementation, and initial scientific investigation of a new, educationally-oriented treatment approach that she has named mindfulness-based elder care (MBEC)." -from the Foreword bySaki Santorelli, EdD, MA , Associate Professor of Medicine, Society University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Drawing on years of experience as a geriatric social worker and mindfulness-based stress reduction practitioner, the author has taken Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program and adapted it to the particular needs of elders, their families , and profossional caregivers. Mindfulness practices focus on abilities rather than on disabilities, in order to provide paths to the inner strengths and resources that we all possess. McBee's Mindfulness-Based Elder Care accessibly conveys the benefits of mindfulness through meditation, gentle yoga, massage, aromatherapy, humor, and other creative therapies to this special population.

Features of this groundbreaking volume include:

" Valuable tips for establishing programs in each population
" Detailed experiential exercises
" Case studies
" Clear instructions for elders and caregivers at all levels

This book conveys the benefits of mindfulness through meditation, gentle yoga, massage, aromatherapy, humor, and other creative therapies. The book is suitable for nursing home residents with physical and cognitive challenges, community-dwelling elders, direct-care staff, and non-professional caregivers.
