Abstract: 

[img_assist|nid=4363|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=125]Wilson, one of the central figures in the exciting field of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), discovered early in his career as a therapist that his attention lapsed in therapy sessions, leaving his clients telling their troubles to someone who, for all intents and purposes, wasn’t even in the room. Wilson resolved to correct this problem and made a personal commitment to remain present for his clients, to “show up” to whatever they brought to their sessions, no matter how painful, awkward, or even boring. This book sets forth, for the first time, Wilson’s analysis of mindfulness processes as a central theme in the workings of ACT and develops an experiential technology that therapists can use both to improve their effectiveness in the therapy room and to facilitate positive change in their clients. The DVD-ROM that comes with this book features exclusive footage of one of the most popular and sought-after ACT trainers, Kelly Wilson, demonstrating his revolutionary therapeutic approach.
