Since the original publication of this seminal work, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practiced 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.

New to This Edition: reflects tremendous advances in ACT clinical applications, theory building, and research; psychological flexibility is now the central organizing focus; expanded coverage of mindfulness, the therapeutic relationship, relational learning, and case formulation; restructured to be more clinician friendly and accessible; focuses on the moment-by-moment process of therapy.
