Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to this edition of the ACT/RFT Reader’s Update.

In this issue, as in all issues, we provide a summary of the literature published related to acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness and relational frame theory. We link summaries to particular topics and provide a review of the articles. Feel free to read the summaries and find the links to the references and abstracts related to the summaries right in the document. For a taste of what is in the Update, we summarize 3 articles on acceptance approaches to treatment, 3 on addiction that compare CBT to ACT, 1 on assessment by Wilson – the VLQ is alive and well -, 2 case study designs looking at the treatment of GAD and cancer, 3 articles on mindfulness based approaches with children and parents, 4 articles on experiential avoidance, 5 on mindfulness including how mindfulness works with managing emotions, intrusive thoughts, stress reduction and substance use. Finally, we have 3 on RFT reviewed by Ian – Thanks Ian!

We have sorted and distributed articles to our reviewers for the first half of 2011. We are looking forward to the next round.

Please let us know if we missed anything that we should include or inform us of dissertations, etc.

Thanks and Enjoy!

Kind Regards,

Robyn D. Walser, Ph.D.
