The ACT Matrix revolutionized contextual behavioral science. Now, the creators of this pioneering new model present the first detailed, step-by-step guide to help professionals implement the ACT Matrix in clinical practice and improve clients’ psychological flexibility. If you’re a clinician, you know that acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is extremely effective in helping clients who are “stuck” in unhealthy thought patterns by encouraging them align their values with their thoughts and actions. However, the ACT model is complex, and it's not always easy to use. Enter the ACT Matrix, a seamless fusion of the six core processes of the ACT hexaflex—cognitive defusion, acceptance, contact with the present moment, observing the self, values, and committed action—into a simplified, easy-to-apply approach. From the editors of The ACT Matrix, The Essential Guide to the ACT Matrix offers professionals a comprehensive guide to using the innovative Matrix model in-session. With this book, you’ll learn how to help your clients break free from painful psychological traps and live more meaningful lives. You’ll also learn how client actions and behavior should be viewed as workable or unworkable, rather than good or bad. Most importantly, you'll discover how this unique approach can be used to deliver ACT more effectively in a variety of settings and contexts, even when clients are resistant or unmotivated to participate. This book is essential for any ACT clinician looking to simplify their therapeutic approach in client sessions.

I write because I am in infatuated with words, my desire is to release them giving them texture, a sound that will resonate deeply in people ́s core like a bell that awakens the soul. In this word voyage I hope my voice becomes yours; allowing this recital to ignite appreciation for life and nature, offering the human spirit a path to change life attitudes. Words intrinsically give us the force to express any situation from the most mundane to the enlightened, they emanate from me like a fountain from which we can become agents for change. For every book that is sold, I will donate a dollar towards the implementation and development of a tree nursery that will be the seed for an urban reforestation project in the city of Cusco, Peru. - César Morán-Cahusac César Morán-Cahusac (www.cesarmorancahusac) is an ecologist, peace advocate and martial artist whose poetry weaves an expansive range of exotic, sensual and surprising life experiences into a dance of verbal refinement. From pig farmer to poet, from Sensei to CEO, from dreamer to truth-seeker, a man without energy and enthusiasm, he certainly is not. "Wuthering wind came and blasted her with words and she said No. The wind was bringing up storms, chasing her with arrogant bluffs and she said No" She Said No to the Wind is Cesar's first poetry anthology.
