Special Double Issue: Accepting, Soothing, and Stilling Cluttered and Critical Minds in Neurological Conditions: Therapeutic Approaches Influenced by Eastern Traditions.

Providing emotional support for people with neurological conditions is confronted by a paradox: in addressing thoughts and feelings that feel distressing and out of control many traditional talking therapies intrinsically demand mental control, the very thing many clients complain they do not have. Clinicians in neurological services are all too aware of the myriad diversity in constellations of physical, cognitive, emotional, and social problems across service users and how they will differentially challenge the traditional models of psychotherapy.

This double issue, the first of the journal's special issues dedicated to a particular topic, presents a range of approaches that step out of the traditional Western psychotherapy mould, to offer new paradigms to address this diversity in service user needs. This issue contains many riches in terms of theory, concepts, and practices. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, Yoga, Martial Arts, Tai Ji and Mindfulness approaches feature via conceptual articles, clinical case studies, and a group evaluation. We hope this diverse clinical theory, evidence and practice is sufficient to equip clinicians from a range of professions in responding to biopsychosocial diversity in neurological services.
