Mindfulness and Character Strengths: A Practical Guide to Flourishing by Ryan Niemiec has been designed for psychologists and other practitioners, such as educators, coaches, and consultants. This book is based around the Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP), the first structured program to combine mindfulness with the character strengths laid out in the VIA Institute’s classification developed by Drs. Martin E. P. Seligman and Christopher Peterson.
The 8-session program systematically boosts awareness and application of character strengths – and so helps people flourish and lead more fulfilling lives. The author’s vast experience working with both mindfulness and character strengths is revealed in his sensitive and clear presentation of the conceptual, practical, and scientific elements of this unique combined approach.
It is not only those who are new to mindfulness or to character strengths who will appreciate the detailed primers on these topics in the first section of the book. The deep discussions about the integration of mindfulness and character strengths in the second section will benefit both intermediate and advanced practitioners. The third section then leads readers on a step-by-step guide through each of the 8 MBSP sessions, including details of session structure and content, suggested homework, 30 practical handouts, as well as inspiring quotes and stories and useful practitioner tips. An additional chapter discusses the adaption of MBSP to different settings and populations (e.g., business, education, individuals, couples).
The mindfulness and character strengths meditations on the accompanying CD support growth and development. This highly accessible book, while primarily conceived for psychologists, educators, coaches, and consultants, is suitable for anyone who is interested in living a flourishing life.
