Description from the Publisher


Accessible and practical, this book provides a unified framework for integrating acceptance and mindfulness into cognitive-behavioral practice. The authors interweave elements of acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, and dialectical behavior therapy. They demonstrate how to conduct an assessment, develop a case formulation, and derive a flexible treatment plan for each patient. Vivid case examples and transcripts illustrate the entire process of therapy, showing how treatment can be tailored for different presenting problems and concerns. More than two dozen reproducible handouts and forms (examples at the link) are included. This title is part of the Guides to Individualized Evidence-Based Treatment Series, edited by Jacqueline B. Persons.

Dr. Orsillo has published over 70 journal articles and book chapters, coedited two books, and coauthored two books.

Together, Drs. Roemer and Orsillo have developed an acceptance-based behavioral therapy for generalized anxiety disorder.
