The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Diary 2020

Spiral Bound

A guide and companion for moving toward the things that matter in your life



The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Diary 2020

Life is often busy, demanding and full of challenges that can cause us to lose sight of what really matters. The Diary for Valued Action is designed to help individuals move towards the things in life that are most important to them. Based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), it puts values centre-stage where they can best guide actions and decisions. It is especially helpful for those engaged in ACT; however, the principles are relevant to anyone seeking to build psychological flexibility – the ability to connect fully with experiences, including difficult thoughts and feelings, and pursue an authentic life. Weekly short, accessible pieces by the authors discuss aspects of psychological flexibility, present helpful metaphors and suggest exercises to identify core values, clarify issues and record goals; while reflection spaces offer regular opportunities to record thoughts, identify barriers and track progress.
