ACT Verbatim for Depression & Anxiety: Annotated Transcripts for Learning Acceptance & Commitment Therapyby Michael P. Twohig
Synopses & Reviews
Copublished with Context Press
This collection of transcripts, organized and annotated by Michael P. Twohig and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) founder Steven C. Hayes, guides you through ACT-based therapy processes session-by-session. The transcripts featured in ACT Verbatim present common situations that arise in clinical practice, while the commentary explains how to identify the six target ACT processes and help clients work through them to achieve psychological flexibility.
For the most detailed view of ACT therapy, the clinical transcripts included here follow the development of one client struggling with anger, anxiety, and depression. Since ACT is process- rather than technique-oriented, this kind of in the moment analysis is a singularly effective way to learn to apply this therapeutic model.
These transcripts will help you:
This volume is the first annotated client transcript prepared using the processes of the new and innovative acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Here readers will find clinical transcripts of nine therapy sessions with a client who struggles with anger and depression, moderated by renowned psychologist and ACT founder Steven Hayes. Throughout the work, annotation will give the reader some idea of how the client is functioning with respect to the six ACT core processes. Since ACT is process-rather than technique-oriented, this kind of in the moment analysis is a singularly effective way to learn how to effect the therapy.
An invaluable aid for clinicians using the acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) model, ACT Verbatim offers transcripts of actual therapy sessions annotated by ACT cofounder Steven Hayes. The annotations coach therapists on how to work through the ACT core processes and how to deal with common situations encountered in therapy sessions
