A Great Resource for Beginning and Seasoned Therapists
on 23 June 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: HardcoverVerified Purchase
Drs. Roemer and Orsillo have written a book that is an excellent resource for therapists who are new to acceptance and mindfulness approaches and those who have been using these approaches longer. They offer a comprehensive integration of ACT, DBT, and several mindfulness-approaches. I especially like that they include an emphasis on emotions and emotion regulation drawing from the work of Leslie Greenberg and others. There are several chapters that offer new insights for therapists at all levels of experience. The chapters on assessment and individualized case formulation offer several ways to look at client functioning and make a case presentation that connects to theory, but is specific to that person. The chapters on setting the stage for therapy and presenting the model focus on the therapeutic relationship and how the therapist and client both struggle with the same complexities of being human. There are numerous exercises and handouts that may be copied for use with clients and the clinical vignettes are helpful. The final chapter on cultural considerations (written with Jonathan Lee and Cara Fuchs) covers adapting therapy for clients from different backgrounds. I will use this book for training psychology interns in our internship program. Overall, I highly recommend this book for both therapists and graduate students.

I found this book to be incredibly informative and useful. It makes what can be a confusing therapeutic approach very accessible. I think this book could be especially useful for the beginning clinician as it is very clear in laying out a guideline for treatment in general and a basic session outline. The handouts the authors provide are clear and easy to read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking to add a mindfulness/acceptance component to their practice.

Good overall clinical guide
on 8 January 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Includes some practical exercises, and is an interesting read. The work is particularly strong in the early 2/3 of the book, while the latter portion gets too much into A.C.T. whereas I was interested in the mindfulness aspects (which is the sole reason for my view that it is a 4.8 instead of 5 stars). I highly recommend the book and applaud the authors for their thoroughness.
