A CBT-Practitioner's Guide To Act

A CBT-Practitioner's Guide To Act

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) practitioners who have integrated acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) strategies into their practices find this revolutionary third-wave treatment enormously effective. However, many encounter challenges due to the differences between the two therapeutic models. The CBT-Practitioner’s Guide to ACT explains how to bridge the CBT-ACT divide and utilize both therapies for a powerful treatment approach.

This practical guide, grounded in current research, clarifies how CBT and ACT differ, how they are similar, and includes all the information you need to begin incorporating ACT techniques into your clinical practice. Worksheets and exercises for both you and your clients appear throughout to help you seamlessly integrate the two therapies.
A Clinician’s Guide to Gender-Affirming Care

A Clinician’s Guide to Gender-Affirming Care

This comprehensive resource outlines the latest research and recommendations to provide you with the requisite knowledge, skills, and awareness to treat TNGC clients with competent and affirming care.

As you know, TNGC clients have different needs based on who they are in relation to the world. Written by three psychologists who specialize in working with the TGNC population, this important book draws on the perspective that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for working with TNGC clients. It offers interventions tailored to developmental stages and situational factors-for example, cultural intersections such as race, class, and religion.

This book provides up-to-date information on language, etiquette, and appropriate communication and conduct in treating TGNC clients, and discusses the history, cultural context, and ethical and legal issues that can arise in working with gender diverse individuals in a clinical setting. You’ll also find information about informed consent approaches that call for a shift in the role of the mental health provider in the position of assessment and referral for the purposes of gender-affirming medical care (such as hormones, surgery, and other procedures).

As changes in recent transgender health care and insurance coverage have provided increased access for a broader range of consumers, it is essential to understand transgender and gender nonconforming clients’ different needs. This book provides practical exercises and skills you can use to help TNGC clients thrive.

Renowned ACT expert Russ Harris presents easy-to-read Q&A sessions to uncover the most common ways clients and practitioners get stuck when using ACT, how to get unstuck, and how to transform that “stuckness” into powerful personal growth.

You’ll also find links to free downloadable resources.

If you are new to ACT – or just want to improve your delivery – this easy-to-read reference guide will help you troubleshoot common in-session challenges and help your clients achieve lasting change.
ACT for Psychosis Recovery

ACT for Psychosis Recovery

ACT for Psychosis Recovery is the first book to provide a breakthrough, evidence-based, step-by-step approach for group work with clients suffering from psychosis. As evidenced in a study by Patricia A. Bach and Steven C. Hayes, patients with psychotic symptoms who received acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in addition to treatment as usual showed half the rate of rehospitalization as those who did not. With this important guide, you’ll learn how a patient’s recovery can be both supported and sustained by promoting acceptance, mindfulness, and values-driven action.

The journey of personal recovery from psychosis is immensely challenging. Patients often struggle with paranoia, auditory hallucinations, difficulties with motivation, poor concentration and memory, and emotional dysregulation. In addition, families and loved ones may have trouble understanding psychosis, and stigmatizing attitudes can limit opportunity and create alienation for patients.

True recovery from psychosis means empowering patients to take charge of their lives. Rather than focusing on pathology, ACT teaches patients how to stay grounded in the present moment, disengage from their symptoms, and pursue personally meaningful lives based on their values.

In this groundbreaking book, you will learn how to facilitate ACT groups based on a central metaphor (Passengers on the Bus), so that mindfulness and values-based action are introduced in a way that is engaging and memorable. You will also find tips and strategies to help clients identify valued directions, teach clients how to respond flexibly to psychotic symptoms, thoughts, and emotions that have been barriers to living a valued life, and lead workshops that promote compassion and connection among participants.
You’ll also find tried and tested techniques for engaging people in groups, particularly those traditionally seen as “hard to reach”-people who may be wary of mental health services or experience paranoia. And finally, you’ll gain skills for engaging participants from various ethnic backgrounds.

Finding purpose and identity beyond mental illness is an important step in a patient’s journey toward recovery. Using the breakthrough approach in this book, you can help clients gain the insight needed to achieve lasting well-being.

Using the session-by-session, 16-week protocol in this professional guide, you can help clients work through the main driver behind BPD-experiential avoidance-and gain the psychological flexibility needed to balance their emotions and begin healing. You can use this protocol on its own, or in conjunction with treatment.
