Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
by Eifert, Georg H.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) aims to teach people to face emotional problems openly with mindfulness and compassion while pursuing what they truly care about in their lives. The book provides an introduction to the principles and methods of ACT and presents therapeutic strategies across disorders. ACT is not primarily about eliminating and controlling symptoms, but about developing greater psychological flexibility through learning mindful acceptance. Using numerous examples, the book describes how clients can learn to respond with greater kindness to their unwanted inner experience, to gently deal with their emotional and thought barriers, and to focus on committed life-goal-oriented action. Numerous experiential exercises, metaphors, mindfulness techniques, and behavioral activation methods are presented for this purpose. In addition, this new edition of the book provides information on current effectiveness evidence and developments in ACT, e.g. promoting self- compassion.
