At ACT workshops around the world, author Russ Harris is often asked one question: 'If you could recommend just one book on ACT, what would it be'? "ACT Made Simple", a clear, accessible, and jargon-free ACT primer, is the answer to that question. Though many mental health professionals are intrigued by the concepts presented in the ACT model, they are often hesitant to delve into intimidating technical volumes that are heavy on theory but lacking in real-world tips and solutions. Based on ACT in a Nutshell, Harris' popular ten-week crash course on the ACT model, this makes the six ACT processes easy to understand and implement in therapy. ACT professionals seeking a refresher course on the model as well as therapists new to ACT will appreciate this practical approach. The book includes conversational responses and questions, but also encourages readers to tailor ACT techniques to their practices and their clients.
