Abstract
Help your clients achieve exactly what they want when it comes to emotional eating: you can eat to cope; you can learn to use food on occasion to feel better; you can feel in control (and have a treat); you don't have to feel bad or guilty about emotional eating; you don't need to completely eliminate emotional eating to be healthy. In his new book, Mindful Emotional Eating, psychologist Pavel Somov has given a "cultural permission" to eat emotionally -- with mindfulness-based tools to do so in moderation and without self-judgment and self-loathing. Somov proposes that emotional eating is a legitimate form of self-care and teaches clients and clinicians how to "leverage more coping per calorie." Numerous original exercises and meditative techniques will guide a more conscious alliance with food during moments of emotional distress.

Abstract
Grounded in research and accumulated clinical wisdom, this book describes a range of ways to integrate mindfulness and other contemplative practices into clinical work with trauma survivors. The volume showcases treatment approaches that can be tailored to this population's needs, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindful self-compassion (MSC), among others. Featuring vivid case material, the book explores which elements of contemplative traditions support recovery and how to apply them safely. Neurobiological foundations of mindfulness-oriented work are examined. Treatment applications are illustrated for specific trauma populations, such as clients with chronic pain, military veterans, and children and adolescents.
