About the Author

John T. Blackledge, PhD, is associate professor in the department of psychology at Morehead State University in Kentucky, LA, where he actively researches acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with his students. He has authored over twenty journal articles, books, and book chapters on ACT and relational frame theory (RFT), and trains others in ACT internationally.


"Focus on defusion as a central change process is, in my opinion, the most important contribution of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to the field of psychotherapy in general. And here is a book that gives any therapist, accustomed to ACT or not, practical advice on how to help clients in this direction. Read and learn!"
--Niklas T rneke, MD, author of Learning RFT and coauthor of The ABCs of Human Behavior
"Finally, a book that shows the practitioner how to use defusion in everyday practice. Defusion is perhaps one of the most powerful ingredients in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and one of the most misunderstood. When done well, defusion helps people to overcome unhelpful thinking patterns and direct their energy towards value-consistent living. When done poorly, defusion can be unpleasant and invalidating. Cognitive Defusion in Practice shows you how to implement defusion effectively, in a way that helps your clients to feel appreciated and to move through the unhelpful beliefs that seem to interfere with their life. The book includes many clear examples of how to use defusion flexibly, in the full flow of therapy. It is also clearly written and set in the context of evidence and the full ACT model. If you want to learn how to use defusion in a way that helps people to accept themselves and transform their lives, then this book is for you."
--Joseph Ciarrochi, PhD, professor at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education, and coauthor of The Weight Escape and Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens
