Book Review: ACT Made Simple

By | ACT, Mindfulness

Book Review: ACT Made Simple Dr Russ Harris I remember a few years ago when I was first introduced to ACT. I have to admit, I struggled with it initially. All this stuff about fusion and observing your self and rich, full and meaningful lives; it all felt a bit much. Fast forward a few years and several training sessions later and I have to say that ACT is transformative in its approach and has continued to be a source of revelation for many of the clients that I’ve worked with as well. ‘ACT Made Simple’ might be slightly deceptive in its title. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT to its friends) might come across as quite straight forward, however, putting ACT into practice can sometimes highlight some of the subtle yet challenging skills that come into play during the average session. With that, Dr. Russ Harris does have a remarkable knack for writing content that is both easy to read and to understand. The beauty of ‘ACT Made Simple’ is in the beautifully playful way in which Dr. Harris can easily engage the reader and offer them insight.

How to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions – Getting Ready for Jan 1st This is part one of a two-part series.  Check out part two for tips after January 1st as well as a special offer. It’s come to that time of year where we reflect on the year that we’ve just encountered, look at the state that we’re in and come up with that dreaded tradition of a New Year’s Resolution. Maybe the year has been a little unkind to you and, as a result, you’ve discovered some unhelpful ‘coping strategy’, such as over-eating, smoking, drinking, gaining weight or even a little too much ‘partying’. Maybe the pace of the year and the circumstances it provided has left you feeling a little stressed, anxious and uneasy. It would seem likely that your new year’s resolution is going to focus on what you feel is out of line with who you want to really be, such as “I’m going to quit smoking” or “I’m going to lose that weight” or “I’m going to get myself to the gym more”, or even simply “I’m going to not stress as much.” According to Statistic Brain, up to 62% of American’s will potentially…
