Product Description

Review

"This is an absolutely outstanding book on applications of acceptance and mindfulness treatments to physical and mental health problems of children and adolescents. Impressive in its scope and the quality of the contributors, the book provides a broad, comprehensive, and cutting-edge examination of acceptance and mindfulness treatments with children and adolescents. The material in the book is presented in a clear, comprehensive manner, with excellent references and follow-up sources provided. Especially of interest are the applications of acceptance and mindfulness treatments to specific populations (e.g., children with anxiety, externalizing disorders, chronic pain, etc.), as well as to broad social contexts (e.g., parents, schools, primary care settings). Overall, this unique book provides excellent coverage of key issues and will be an important and valuable resource for today's child health professionals. This book is a "must read" for professionals in child health and mental heath who wish to understand and use mindfulness treatments in clinical research or practice." --Annette M. La Greca, PhD, ABPP Cooper Fellow and professor of psychology and Pediatrics at the University of Miami and editor of the "Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology "

I enjoyed this book, which is well written, researched and informative. The book provides the reader with a great overview of the evidence base for the different acceptance and mindfulness approaches, while being practical and grounded in case studies. Although the title suggests, and I was hoping for, the focus to be on adolescents, the book includes work with adults. and acknowledges that acceptance and mindfulness with young people is a new field. I learnt a great deal and would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the research or practice of these approaches.

more of a reference book then a protocol 7 Aug. 2009
By P. A. Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoy this book's thoughtful approach to mindfulness type theoretical approaches with children and adolescents. It seems to take a meta-analysis approach which really offers great comparisons of treatment modalities. What is the downfall of the book for me is that it offers a lot of information that requires buying more information. The group curriculums are only superficial and their lack of completeness leaves this reader frustrated that to do one of the curriculums I have to purchase more materials or spend more hours searching through more books to create it myself. If I had that kind of time I may not have purchased the book in the first place. Since it was labeled a Practitioner's Guide I thought it would be more detailed and less overview. Still, I am glad for the new information and will use this book as a reference book more then a treatment protocol.

Excellent resource! Presents a variety of evidence based treatment strategies in a clear, concise manner. I'm an outpatient psychotherapist and consistently refer to different chapters in the book. An invaluable addition to my professional library.

A must for clinicians looking to use ACT with children and adolescents 2 Feb. 2014
By Chip Wilder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume contains a range of articles which provides the foundation and specific applications for ACT with children and youth. While there are a few other books such as Louise Hayes', Getting Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens, with more detail, this volume provides the only comprehensive overview of ACT's application, along with specific process-based practice activities, that is currently available.

ACT with Adolescents - fabulous book with very good clinical applications. 6 Jan. 2009
By Luana Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book has some very good explanations of the application of ACT for adolescents - I used it immediately in my work. It covers theory adequately to inform the practice, and has very practical suggestions that help to formulate the case and apply the knowledge clinically.

Not worth it 20 Jun. 2011
By M Silliman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As I read this book I had to constantly keep checking to make sure I wasn't reading the intro over. After downloading a sample of the book for my kindle I found the intro interesting. So I purchased this book, while I was reading the book on my kindle I had to constantly check to see if I had changed sections. This book seems to be a collection of writings that have been pulled together to create a "practitioner's guide". Almost every chapter reintroduces what ACT is then briefly talks about how it has been implemented.

I went into this book very excited about what knowledge it could hold only to be disappointed. Ultimately I returned the book.
