And this book can help you learn it.
Dr. Steven C. Hayes
ACT may well be on its way to overtaking DBT as the "gold standard" of psychotherapy for insurance and HMO funders.

The workbook is a great balance of information and exercises, is easy to understand and the layout is beautiful.

Having already "done" New Harbinger's DBT Skills Workbook, The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety, and Get Out of Your Mind & Into Your Life, as well as having encountered Follette (and Hayes) before in Guilford Press's Mindfulness & Acceptance; I cannot say I am surprised at the quality of this book.

ACT may well be on its way to overtaking DBT as the "gold standard" of psychotherapy for insurance and HMO funders. It combines the best of psychodynamic and existential platforming with behavioristic, cognitive and experiential techniques known now to produce the payoffs in neurobiological rehabilitation. Albert Ellis would have loved it. So would Aaron Beck. So would John Watson, B. F. Skinner and Edna Foa. So would Hans Selye, Joseph Wolpe and Joseph LeDoux, not to mention the 14th Dalia Lama (who's very much into such stuff; read Sharon Begley).

Modern psychotherapy is no longer about laying on couches and listening to recitations of century-old theories about potty training and Oedipal fantasies. It's no longer about chilly, 50-year-old notions that the past doesn't matter. It's no longer about dealing with the effects of shock solely on the basis of our verbal representations of it. And it's no longer about medicating our aches and pains to mask them off from consciousness to the exclusion of actually doing something about them.

In 2011, it's about identifying, questioning, reframing and either revising or rejecting the ideas in our heads that make us depressed, anxious, angry, shameful, guilty, remorseful, regretful or whatever... and sitting still and =feeling= what we feel, instead of hiding from it.

Learning to carry pain forward into a vital, meaningful life is a skill. It can be learned. And this book can help you learn it. For people suffering from the after effects of horrific or abusive experiences, it provides a guide to a new way of living that is compassionate, self-validating, realistic, and empowering.

There are now therapist manuals as well designed to help clinicians learn how to use this approach with trauma: Acceptance & Commitment Therapy for the Treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: A Practitioner's Guide to Using Mindfulness & Acceptance Strategies

I wrote the foreword for this book -- I'm not an objective observer -- but this is the real deal and I recommend it.

Steve Hayes

Ditching the memories of unpleasant events of yesterday, last week, or last year isn't an easy task for some of us. Using this instructive and easy to follow workbook it's clear to me now that isn't the goal. Pick it up. Work through it. You'll see what I mean.

I have found, in 20 years of counseling that some patients really value from a workbooks that target their issues and concerns. In my practice I seldom see someone traumatized by early childhood experiences which many books address. I need books that recognize that most psychological trauma is caused by life threatening accidents or disease, crime, natural disaster and war. For those individual who benefit from both counseling and hands-on guided journaling and reflection, I keep a few select workbooks that I have found the most faithful to evidence-based technique and exercises. This is one of the books I use in my practice because it addresses the breadth of traumas that have expanded the fields of PTSD treatment.

ACT is the best therapy I have found because it shows how you can start to live a meaningful life based on your values, not controlled by your PTSD, NOW. Instead of waiting for the PTSD to magically go away, you learn how to manage it while moving in the direction you choose, not your symptoms. It comes across mistakenly as "Just suck it up and do it," but reread the parts on compassion. It's the most realistic book on PTSD I have ever read and the most respectful of PTSD survivors' realities. The authors get what we are living with in a way no other book seems to. I know now that I am not going to do a day treatment or some fad therapy and be cured and then go out and have a life - those magic cures so many PTSD survivors seek keep failing us. PTSD doesn't have to define or control us. We can have the symptoms of PTSD and still have lives of meaning. I have an actual ACT psychologist and he's first therapist I have had in 20 years of "recovery" that has helped me. In 6 months of ACT I'd say that my PTSD symptoms are cut in half and that I feel like a person, not a diagnosis.

This is one of the best workbooks that I have come across in a long time as a psychologist. The workbook is a great balance of information and exercises, is easy to understand and the layout is beautiful. I specialize in trauma and to have a resource like this is fantastic! Finding Life Beyond Trauma is unique, offers new and different ideas and moves the reader into solutions and action. I love the 'mindfullness bell' - again a unique and critical strategy to incorporate into trauma treatment. Great job Drs. Follette & Pistorello!
