A practical introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for the general reader.
From one of the co-authors of the bestselling Little CBT Workbook, The Little ACT Workbook is a simple, hands-on, practical guide introducing essential ACT techniques you can use to live a full and meaningful life and change your life for the better.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an empirically-supported mindfulness-based behavioural therapy, gaining significant ground in the UK. This helpful book is packed full of guidance, techniques and a series of practical exercises so you can immediately start applying key ACT principles to your day-to-day life. Learn how to:
Manage stress, depression and anxiety more effectively
Improve your mood and resilience
Create an enjoyable, meaningful and fuller life
* Rather than assuming that you need to change your thoughts and emotions in order to feel better, ACT shows you how to change your relationship to your thoughts and feelings, and to loosen up around them in order to engage in value-based action. The Little ACT Workbook ensures you have the insight, tools and confidence to apply these valuable principles to your own situation and put them into practice today.
