Abstract: 

[img_assist|nid=4367|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=125]One of the first trade books to apply acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to love relationships, this guide is written in a style that appeals to lay readers and experienced ACT practitioners alike. Chapter by chapter, readers learn to live by their values in a relationship, use mindfulness to accept and appreciate their partners, change their behavior to become the partners they want to be, and acknowledge but set aside unhelpful beliefs and thoughts about the relationship. The book includes exercises couples can do together to learn to act with compassion and love toward each other.
