Overview

Long awaited, here is the first book to apply the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) model and its powerful techniques to a broad range of disorders and clinical settings. ACT cuts across the traditional categories of experiential, analytic, behavioral, and cognitive therapies to utilize concepts of mindfulness and acceptance and the view that language is at the core of many psychological disorders. With the help of 26 expert contributors, ACT architects Hayes and Strosahl have expanded on their previous texts to give readers a source of ideas for using this language/cognition-based method.
