About the Book


Freedom in Pain introduces a new type of psychotherapeutic method for self-help with pain and for the treatment of chronic pain patients: mindfulness-based pain therapy MBPT. It is based on the 2,500-year-old ancient techniques of the Buddhis­t mindfulness practice that have found their way into modern Western psychotherapy and medicine during the past few decades. The innovative feature of MBPT is that it opens a new perspective on the suffering of chronic pain patients (rectangle of suffering and pain-intensifying factors) and its cause (mental autonomy center). The path of treatment in seven individual steps (mindfulness cascade) offers an unprecedented system in the separate aspects of the complex mindfulness concept.
