Get out of your mind & into your life : the new acceptance & commitment therapy by Steven C Hayes( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Get ready to take a different perspective on your problems and your life-and the way you live it. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a new, scientifically based psychotherapy that takes a fresh look at why we suffer and even what it means to be mentally healthy. What if pain were a normal, unavoidable part of the human condition, but avoiding or trying to control painful experience were the cause of suffering and long-term problems that can devastate your quality of life? The ACT process hinges on this distinction between pain and suffering. As you work through this book, you'll learn to let go of your struggle against pain, assess your values, and then commit to acting in ways that further those values." "ACT is not about fighting your pain; it's about developing a willingness to embrace every experience life has to offer. It's not about resisting your emotions; it's about feeling them completely and yet not turning your choices over to them. ACT offers you a path out of suffering by helping you choose to live your life based on what matters to you most. If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, or problem anger, this book can help-clinical trials suggest that ACT is very effective for a whole range of psychological problems. But this is more than a self-help book for a specific complaint-it is a revolutionary approach to living a richer and more rewarding life. Book jacket."--Jacket
Acceptance and commitment therapy : an experiential approach to behavior change by Steven C Hayes( Book )

40 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the initial publication of this seminal work, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practiced approach to helping people change. This book provides the definitive statement of ACT, written by its originators. Reflecting tremendous advances in clinical applications, theory building, and research, the second edition has been restructured to be more clinician friendly and accessible, with a central focus on cultivating psychological flexibility. ACT is based on the idea that psychological rigidity is a root cause of depression, anxiety, and many other forms of suffering. It seeks to help patients overcome excessive reliance on a problem-solving mode of mind and to facilitate a more open, centered, and engaged approach to living. The authors describe effective, innovative ways to nurture psychological flexibility by detecting and targeting six key processes: defusion, acceptance, attention to the present moment, perspective taking, values, and committed action. Sample therapeutic exercises and patient-therapist dialogues are integrated throughout. With heightened attention to the moment-by-moment process of therapy, the second edition features expanded coverage of mindfulness, the therapeutic relationship, relational learning, case formulation, and the connections between ACT and cognitive-behavioral therapy. The book also explains the research framework underlying the ongoing development of ACT and looks at where the science may be heading in the future

The anorexia workbook : how to accept yourself, heal your suffering, and reclaim your life by Michelle Heffner( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite ever-widening media attention and public awareness of the problem, American women continue to struggle with anorexia nervosa in greater numbers than ever before. If you're trying to move past anorexia, making the decision to seek help is wonderful start. Based on a compassionate new model of psychotherapy called acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT, this book builds on the idea that your past efforts to overcome anorexia may have caused you more harm than good. This approach works to free you from the judgments associated with anorexia, from the implication that there is something wrong with you. Instead, the book guides you through an approach that encourages you to mindfully observe difficult thoughts and feelings without reacting to them in a self-destructive way. Once you're in this more compassionate and receptive frame of mind, the step-by-step techniques in the book can help you redirect energy you used to spend on losing weight into taking positive action to heal both your body and mind."--Back cover
