The Wiley Blackwell Handbook of Mindfulness, edited by Amanda Ie, Christelle T. Ngnoumen, and Ellen J. Langer, brings together the latest multi-disciplinary research on mindfulness from a group of international scholars. It examines the origins and key theories of the two dominant Western approaches to mindfulness. It compares, contrasts, and integrates insights from the social psychological and Eastern-derived perspectives. And it discusses the implications for mindfulness across a range of fields, including consciousness and cognition, education, creativity, leadership and organizational behavior, law, medical practice and therapy, well-being, and sports.
