Course Description
ISBN-13: 978-0976463849

This course was developed from the book, Brilliant Sanity, Buddhist Approaches to Psychotherapy which explores the diverse and evolving interface of Buddhism and psychotherapy. Contributors include Tibetan meditation teachers such as Chogyam Trungpa and the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts such as Mark Epstein and Ed Podvoll, eminent Buddhist psychologists such as Han De Wit, Karen Wegela and Robert Unger.

This volume includes chapters that discuss how Buddhism interacts with contemporary clinical theory and practices such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, the treatment of psychosis, existential psychology, body psychotherapy, therapist subjectivity and more.

As Harvard Medical School Professor, Eleanor Councilman writes, “It makes the reader aware of the multitudes of Eastern and Western perspectives and is one of the most culturally sensitive psychological books I have read. It is extremely readable and enjoyable.”
