Accessible and practical, this book provides a unified framework for integrating acceptance and mindfulness into cognitive-behavioral practice. The authors interweave elements of acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, and dialectical behavior therapy. They demonstrate how to conduct an assessment, develop a case formulation, and derive a flexible treatment plan for each patient. Vivid case examples and transcripts illustrate the entire process of therapy, showing how treatment can be tailored for different presenting problems and concerns. More than two dozen reproducible handouts and forms are included.
"This outstanding book describes the most up-to-date conceptualizations of mindfulness-and acceptance-based procedures, which are components of most, if not all, successful therapies. The authors present a modular approach for integrating these empirically supported techniques into the treatment of patients with diverse problems. This is the shape of things to come—a book that should be read by every clinician and clinical trainee who wants to stay abreast of advances in psychological treatments."

"This timely and important volume offers an insider's view of what is essential and unique about mindfulness- and acceptance-based treatments. The authors show how core mechanisms of therapeutic change, derived from clinical science, can be flexibly applied in therapy that is client centered, compassionate, and emotionally connected. They provide a nuanced understanding of complex theoretical issues and how they bear on actual treatment. This readable book will be welcomed by seasoned clinicians for its conceptual clarity and wealth of clinical exercises, and by beginning therapists as a trustworthy guide to acceptance-based behavioral treatment."
-Christopher K. Germer, PhD, coeditor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy
