I am a psychotherapist and had heard of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This book is great. I am studying it slowly and the language is clear and easy to understand.

This text is indeed "made simple" The underlying theoretical principles are there yet the text is a helpful and supportive guide to working with clients. It gives useful exercises and always there is the context of how one can be genuinely helpful in a gentle and supportive way.

This is a must have i think. Hayes writes too intellectually for my liking...this boook made so much sense and is really practical! I definately have a good feel for ACT now and reading Hayes and co now, makes much more sense! Buy it!

ACT made simple is an easy to read primer on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. It is by far the best book for anyone new to ACT to read to gain a basic understanding of this truly amazing research based approach to therapy. It is also great for those who have some prior knowledge to consolidate and clarify areas of confusion

Good simple summary of ACT. Easy to understand. Could do with some more examples of how to use the approaches in practise with clients.

As a student counsellor and someone who struggles with anxiety i have found the act approach helpful for myself and my clients.
The acceptance and defusion has especially been helpful for me and in client work. The mindful ness is also something that sits well with my life at this time.

ACT was mentioned by my mindfulness meditation teacher during a class so I decided to explore further. This book is really written for therapists rather than the general reader but it can be interesting and useful to anyone. There are lots of little exercises that anyone can try.

Explains accessment and committment therapy in simple terms. Easy to work through. Would recommend. Same author Russ Harris has written other books on same theme which overlap slightly but all with different emphasis. This covers everything.
