Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: The Process and Practice of Mindful Change


Product Description

Published USA, 2011 (2nd edition) Paperback edition 2016
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.
