Description

The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Journal

Life is often busy, demanding and full of challenges that can cause us to lose sight of what really matters. The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Journal is designed to help individuals to focus on the things that are most important to them by identifying personal values and putting them centre-stage where they can best guide actions and decisions.

Taking the form of a 12-week course of structured self-development, with ACT-informed guidance, reflection exercises, goal-setting tasks and inspirational quotations throughout, it is especially helpful for those currently engaged in ACT and other forms of brief therapy and/or coaching. However, the principles and lessons are relevant to anyone seeking to increase their personal wellbeing and build psychological flexibility – the ability to connect fully with experiences, including difficult thoughts and feelings, and pursue an authentic life.

3 reviews for The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Journal

  1. E Burnside

    Really helpful and accessible
    This book is a wonderful companion for anyone wanting to develop more fulfillment and meaning from life. The journal offers a really good way to learn the principles of ACT, by putting them straight into practice for yourself ( often the best way to learn anything!) Even if you are already familiar with this approach, this is a great way to start or continue practising and keep yourself on track with what you find helpful. It’s written in straightforward language in a gentle and heartfelt style, which really makes you feel connected with the authors. I loved the exercises, the invitation to really give myself some space for reflection and the wonderful quotes peppered throughout. I find sticking to journalling quite hard generally, but I found the structure and guidance really helpful to keep me focused. I definitely recommend this.

  2. Dr Mike Sinclair

    A very handy and practical companion for your journey towards a more gratifying life
    I just love this journal/mini-workbook, it is incredibly user-friendly and practical. The authors have done a wonderful job of distilling the essential components of this evidence-based and powerful behavioural change model (ACT) into this handy resource, which when followed will serve as your personal companion, supporting you every step of the way on a week-by-week journey, towards building a more satisfying life. Packed full of inspirational quotes, and useful exercises to help you reflect, and develop the necessary skills for improving your wellbeing and creating a meaningful life, this highly engaging and clearly-presented guide is likely to be life-changing (in a very good way!). I cannot recommend this journal enough.

  3. Louise McHugh

    If you are looking to create lasting change look no further!
    The ACT Journal by Hooper, Donnelly & Jackson Brown is a wonderfully insightful way to clarify what is important to you and to overcome blocks to building a vital life. It is accessible and yet powerful in the exercises it asks the reader to complete. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to bring vitality to their lives.
