This book presents an ACT approach - utilizing a schema-based formulation - to help clients overcome maladaptive interpersonal behaviours. Clients learn how schema avoidance behaviour damages their relationships; they face 'creative hoplessness' and practise new mindfulness skills; they examine what they value in their relationships and what they hope to gain from them, and translate their values into clear intentions for acting differently in the future; and, lastly, clients face the cognitive and emotional barriers standing between them and values-based behaviour in their relationships.
Matthew McKay is a Professor at the Wright Institute in California, USA.
