The best way to describe acceptance and commitment therapy is the process of getting to know your unpleasant feelings, then learning not to act upon them, and to not avoid situations where they are invoked. Its an empowering therapy to allow people to face their fears, and do what they have to do to realize the truth. Acceptance and commitment therapy is a new, scientifically based psychotherapy that takes a fresh look at why we suffer and even what it means to be mentally healthy. This book is very thorough and well presented with material that could be integrated into psychiatry and psychotherapy study. John and George are really immersed in this work, and it shows up in the gentle way that they explain the key concepts of ACT. The subtle way they frame their examples also shows their deep understanding of what this therapy is all about.
