Overview

The contributors of these 14 articles have found Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT, said as one word) a useful treatment approach for a wide range of clinical problems. ACT is based on Relational Frame Theory, which holds that psychopathology is built into human language, suggesting ways to diminish destructive language-based functions and augment helpful ones. Contributors describe the ACT approach, including its core therapy processes, intervention strategies, therapist competencies, and case formation. They describe how ACT works in the treatment of affective and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse and dependence, serious mental illness, and multiple-problem situations. They also describe ACT in special populations, settings and methods, such as with children, adolescents and their parents, in cases of stress, medical settings, in chronic pain and in group formats. Extensive references are provided. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
