Reviews

"Learning ACT is by far the best practical skill-building work book produced so far in the ACT literature. Teaching psychotherapy skills is complicated, and this book serves as a model for how it can be done. This book breaks down the ACT core process into bite-size portions making these skills visible, understandable and doable. The book is organized around core competencies but uses an ingenious system of therapist-client dialogue where the reader is encouraged to interact and respond applying each core skill. Besides all the cutting edge skill training abundant in this book, you cannot miss the compassionate vital spirit that these extraordinary ACT therapists bring into the therapy room. This book will surely be a classic for teaching psychotherapy!" --JoAnne Dahl, Ph.D, associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden "If you are looking for a hands-on approach to acceptance and commitment therapy, this book is must! Very well organized and written in clear, concise terms, Luoma and colleagues spell out the essentials of doing ACT, with annotated narrative in session transcripts demonstrating key points. You will leave this book with not only a set of clinical skills, but also with the knowledge of when and how to apply them in therapy.$rdquo; --Kirk Strosahl Ph.D., coauthor of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: An Experiential Approach to Behavior Change and A Practical Guide to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Learning ACT is by far the best practical skill-building work book produced so far in the ACT literature.
