Abstract: 

This book is available for purchase from the ACBS Professional Bookstore.


Based on ACT in a Nutshell, Harris’ popular ten-week crash course on the ACT model, ACT Made Simple makes the six ACT processes easy to understand and implement in therapy. ACT professionals seeking a refresher course on the model as well as therapists new to ACT will appreciate this practical approach. The book includes conversational responses and questions, but also encourages readers to tailor ACT techniques to their practices and their clients. Readers learn to innovate simple mindfulness exercises, create their own defusion techniques, make client worksheets, and set up client homework schedules. Chapters include “handy tips” and “when this doesn’t work” sections.
