5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding workbook, 1 May 2012
The authors have put together an extremely valuable workbook for both individuals struggling with addiction and treatment providers. By applying an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework to addiction, "Wisdom" helps those struggling with substance abuse to sit in kindness with their recovery process while moving towards living a rich, full and meaningful life. Kelly Wilson interlaces his own personal recovery experiences with research-based ACT techniques to create an engaging, creative and insightful self-help workbook that offers a powerful path to recovery. Practical, easy-to-follow exercises help readers make healthy contact with difficult experiences, develop greater clarity about personal values, and take empowering steps towards behavior change. It can be used in conjunction with the 12-step approach or as a stand-alone treatment resource. As a clinical psychologist, I have found this to be an invaluable tool in helping clients in their recovery and have had an excellent response. On a personal note, "Wisdom" has been a life-changing book for a loved one struggling with addiction. I cannot thank the authors enough for this tremendous contribution to the treatment of addiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book, 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful book. This is the 6th ACT book I've read so far (I thought all of them were excellent), and this is my favourite so far. The authors write with a rare combination of clinical expertise, compassion, humility and humour.

Whilst it's targeted at substance use, in my opinion it's relevant to anyone struggling with any form of compulsive and problematic behaviour. I've recommended this to countless clinicians, clients and friends so far. It's incredibly easy to read and unbelievably helpful
