This chapter focuses on the role of meditation and mindfulness in clinical therapy, and on how meditation as part of the therapeutic process relates to spiritual growth and development. Definitions and types of meditation practice are discussed, followed by a brief review of theories about how meditation may work. Various applications and examples of meditation practice are reviewed, along with specific instructions on how to implement them in clinical practice. In the final section, research designed to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of meditation is reviewed, along with a discussion of future trends.
