I’m pleased to introduce our newest blog, Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, by clinical psychologist Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. Dr. Goldstein is a mindfulness expert and an engaging writer and we’re happy to have him join Psych Central’s growing family.

What is mindfulness? I’ll let Dr. Goldstein explain from his introductory entry:

Mindfulness is intentionally paying attention to the present moment while putting aside our preconceived ideas, expectations, and judgments. It is being in connection with the here and now. Over the past 30 years there has been a buildup of evidence-based research using mindfulness practice to work with difficult medical and mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, addiction, insomnia, chronic pain, immune function, cancer, trauma, and more.

Over the coming months I will be posting news, studies, and advice to help you integrate mental health and mindfulness strategies into your daily life. While mindfulness practice is thousands of years old, with rising statistics in stress and distressing disorders there isn’t a more important time than today to learn about how it intersects with mental health.

I encourage you to check out the new blog, welcome Dr. Goldstein in the comments area, and add it to your RSS feeds today!
