Leading experts in acceptance and commitment therapy teach mental health professionals how to use acceptance, mindfulness, and values-based treatment strategies for treating major anxiety disorders. Through this book, therapists will learn how to integrate acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) treatments for anxiety disorders into their practices. This text adapts ACT principles and techniques specifically for the treatment of anxiety disorders, presenting them in a clear and systematic step-by-step format. The book focuses on the broad class of anxiety disorders, the most common group of mental illnesses, which includes general anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Written with therapists in mind, this book is easy to navigate, allowing busy professionals to find the information they need when they need it. It includes detailed examples of individual therapy sessions as well as many worksheets and exercises, the very important "homework" clients do at home to reinforce work they do in the office.
