Product Description

Published USA, 2011 (2nd edition)
Since the original publication of this seminal work, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practised approach to helping people change. This book provides the definitive statement of ACT - from conceptual and empirical foundations to clinical techniques - written by its originators. ACT is based on the idea that psychological rigidity is a root cause of a wide range of clinical problems. The authors describe effective, innovative ways to cultivate psychological flexibility by detecting and targeting six key processes: defusion, acceptance, attention to the present moment, self-awareness, values and committed action. Sample therapeutic exercises and patient-therapist dialogues are integrated throughout.
