Description

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) practitioners who have integrated acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) strategies into their practices find this revolutionary third-wave treatment enormously effective. However, many encounter challenges due to the differences between the two therapeutic models. The CBT-Practitioner's Guide to ACT explains how to bridge the CBT-ACT divide and utilize both therapies for a powerful treatment approach. This practical guide, grounded in current research, clarifies how CBT and ACT differ, how they are similar, and includes all the information you need to begin incorporating ACT techniques into your clinical practice. Worksheets and exercises for both you and your clients appear throughout to help you seamlessly integrate the two therapies.
