Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Depression: Using ACT to Move Through Depression


Product Description

Published USA, 2017 (42nd edition)
There are many books that will try and help us overcome depression. But what if we could use our depression to change our life for the better? Our symptoms may be signals that something in our life needs to change. This workbook uses techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to offer a new treatment plan for depression that gets us to accept our feelings rather than fruitlessly trying to ignore them. The book helps us evaluate our depression and create a personalized treatment plan. The therapy is a nine-step treatment program. The accompanying CD contains the worksheets for many of the exercises in the book and audio-recordings of certain ACT exercises. The second edition has been fully revised and updated.
