    About the Author

    Meg Barker is a senior lecturer in psychology at the Open University and a sexual and relationship therapist. Meg has researched and written extensively on relationships, gender and sexuality – particularly on bisexuality, BDSM and polyamory – and discusses these matters for a general audience on the Rewriting the Rules blog (http://www.rewriting-the-rules.com). Meg co-edits the journal Psychology & Sexuality and co-organises the Critical Sexology, Social Mindfulness, BiUK and Sense about Sex projects, as well as working closely with the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). Meg is also the co-author of the Sage books Understanding counselling and psychotherapy (with Andreas Vossler and Darren Langdridge), and Sexuality and gender for mental health professionals: A practical guide (with Christina Richards).


    Much gratitude to Christina Richards for all her expertise on mental health and counselling psychology, which this book would have been much weaker without, as well as for invaluable proofreading. Thanks so much to Steven Stanley for helping to forge the social mindfulness project and for being a fellow lone mindful voice in the wilderness of critical social psychology.

    Thanks to all of my fellow mindful therapists, counsellors, psychologists and scientists as well as to all the Buddhist scholars and practitioners who are engaging in these important debates. I would particularly like to acknowledge Stephen and Martine Batchelor for setting me on this long and fruitful journey with their inspirational writing.
