"This is the much needed practical guide for implementing ACT. The overview of ACT is the most practical and understandable I've read and the guide for implementing the treatment is the step-by-step "how to" I've been needing. I really appreciated the specific examples provided for implementing the treatment and the word for word descriptions of how experienced ACT clinicians approach difficult situations. It is rare to discover a book like this that not only furthers my understanding of a treatment but also motivates me to practice it!” - Laura Heffernan, Ph.D.
“This is a wonderful book that is very simple and easy to follow. I have never been a big fan of self help books but this book was so relatable with wonderful stories and a very encouraging layout. The chapters are short and sweet, giving you just enough to mull over during the day. In my opinion this is a must read that isn't just for when issues arise in relationships but also to help you learn to appreciate your partner day to day.” – Amazon reviewer
