Acceptance and Change: Content and Context in Psychotherapy by Steven C. Hayes
The result of the Nevada Conference on Acceptance and Change, held at the University of Nevada in January of 1993, this book explores the results of clinical empirical investigations into acceptance-base psychotherapeutic treatment methods. Until the last few decades, nearly all empirical psychological investigations focused only on direct, change-oriented techniques. Now more current research has applied the same research methods to acceptance-based approaches, and the leaders in the field report some of their finding in this volume. Here are accounts of new basic analyses, treatment techniques, assessment methods, and therapy manuals relating to a range of clinical practice areas. These findings are essential readings for scholars and clinicians interested in acceptance-based treatments.
