Looking to improve your therapy approach?

How often do you review your appointment calendar and start wondering how you’re going to, finally, help a regular client who seems to progress for a while - and then regress?

Each time he/she arrives, you use the same tools and techniques you’ve used for so long - and mostly successfully - but this one client is testing your skills. Now, you can begin to integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into your practice - and see improved outcomes.

Researched and developed by world-renowned researcher, speaker and author Steven Hayes, PhD, ACT is fast becoming the treatment approach that gets to the heart of therapeutic relationship.

ACT techniques for mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, anger and more
Experiential exercises, case studies and video examples
