Additional Information

Metaphors and exercises play an incredibly important part in the successful delivery of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These powerful tools go far in helping clients connect with their values and give them the motivation needed to make a real, conscious commitment to change. Unfortunately, many of the metaphors that clinicians use have become stale and ineffective. That’s why you need fresh, new resources for your professional library.

In this breakthrough book, two ACT researchers provide an essential A-Z resource guide that includes tons of new metaphors and experiential exercises to help promote client acceptance, defusion from troubling thoughts, and values-based action. The book also includes scripts tailored to different client populations, and special metaphors and exercises that address unique problems that may sometimes arise in your therapy sessions.

Several ACT texts and workbooks have been published for the treatment of a variety of psychological problems. However, no one resource exists where you can find an exhaustive list of metaphors and experiential exercises geared toward the six core elements of ACT. Whether you are treating a client with anxiety, depression, trauma, or an eating disorder, this book will provide you with the skills needed to improve lives, one exercise at a time.

With a special foreword by ACT cofounder Steven C. Hayes, PhD, this book is a must-have for any ACT Practitioner.

There is not much I can say about this book that hasn’t already been emphatically stated by other reviewers. It is a fantastic resource for any counseling professional, physician, or health care provider interested in learning more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and applying it to their own practice. It is clearly written and very well organized into the different components of the ACT model. There are so many different metaphors contained within this book, that if you plan on learning and/or using ACT, this is one of the best bang for your buck books. I am constantly referring to this book for different ways to educate my patients about the various components of psychological flexibility. Clearly, from my review, I highly recommend it!
This book is a tremendously valuable addition to the library of anyone who has a desire to learn more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, especially clinicians that would like to incorporate ACT metaphors and exercises into their professional work. As a beginner therapist, I can say from personal experience that this book has been extremely helpful in both my professional and personal life. The metaphors are very easy to understand and as compared to other books on ACT, I believe this text provides the largest number of exercises and metaphors that can be immediately applied to your clinical work. I refer back to this book weekly as I prepare to see clients and I have used many of the worksheets provided on a regular basis as well. The Big Book of ACT Metaphors is simply a MUST HAVE for anyone that is teaching, practicing, or supervising ACT.
If you are using ACT in your practice you must have this book. It is informative and very instructive for the clinician. You will gain many, many important metaphorical approaches that are very useful in your sessions. The book does an excellent job of de-literalizing concepts driven by language that is often holding the client in their stuck or fused mode. And, of course, it is fun at the same time to gain metaphorical approaches to tweak your own growth and at the same time-- the clients. Good job Dr. Stoddard. Please keep those cards and letter coming.
