Accessible and practical, this book provides a unified framework for integrating acceptance and mindfulness into cognitive-behavioral practice. The authors interweave elements of acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, and dialectical behavior therapy. They demonstrate how to conduct an assessment, develop a case formulation, and derive a flexible treatment plan for each patient. Vivid case examples and transcripts illustrate the entire process of therapy, showing how treatment can be tailored for different presenting problems and concerns. More than two dozen reproducible handouts and forms are included.

Orsillo, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts. Her current research focuses on the role of emotional response styles, most notably experiential avoidance, in maintaining psychological difficulties. In collaboration with her doctoral students in clinical psychology, she has developed a number of prevention and treatment programs that integrate acceptance and mindfulness with evidence-based behavioral approaches. Dr. Orsillo has published over 70 journal articles and book chapters, coedited two books, and coauthored two books. Together, Drs. Roemer and Orsillo have developed an acceptance-based behavioral therapy for generalized anxiety disorder.

Their self-help book The Mindful Way through Anxiety draws from their decade of research in this area to provide guidance to people struggling with anxiety.
