Advanced ACT
“It’s rare that I read a textbook that’s so good I don’t merely want to recommend it, I want to actually rave about it – in a very loud voice! Advanced ACT is such a book: a truly superb advanced-level textbook for the ACT practitioner who already has a handle on the basics, but now wants to evolve a more fluid, flexible, and effective style of ACT…It’s easy to read, extremely engaging (in parts, laugh-out-loud funny) and incredibly practical. Even highly experienced ACT practitioners will get a lot from this book…So if you’re ready to move from the beginner level “ACT-ish therapy”, to genuine, high-powered ACT, then rush out and get this book NOW!!!” Dr. Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap.


"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.

The Mindful Couple “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
