The self plays an integral role in human motivation, cognition, and social identity. A must-have addition to any acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) practitioner’s library,The Self in Practicetranslates the ACT model’s most difficult—yet essential—process into easy-to-apply steps and user-friendly language.

Every client who partakes in ACT must identify aselfas part of their treatment, and clinicians often report thatobserving the selfis the most difficult of all six core ACT processes. This is because it's so hard for people to shed preconceived notions of “who they really are,” and negative perceptions of the self can lead to feelings of low self-worth that stand in the way of treatment.

Problems with the self arise when clients orient themselves in the world and learn to relate to others, but these problems can vary considerably. For example, some clients may have deficits in developing a strong sense of self in the first place—particularly if they are diagnosed with autism spectrum conditions (ASC). Depressed clients, or those with borderline personality disorder (BPD), may develop a skewed, negative sense of self, and those with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) may develop an inflated sense of self.With this unique road map, you will learn to apply the complex theory of the self into everyday practice, and help all clients develop empathy, compassion, and flexible perspective taking—leading to better treatment outcomes and better lives for clients.
