Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.Values in Practice is powerful and practical guide for any therapist-chock-full of insight and tools to conceptualize, integrate, and effectively apply values work in-session. With an emphasis on cultivating meaning and vitality in client lives, the values component of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is what draws many clinicians to the treatment model. Yet, until now, there have been no practical guides available on values-based practice written from an ACT perspective. And while values work may appear deceptively simple, it's often difficult to effectively carry out in practice. That's where this comprehensive guide comes in. Values in Practice emphasizes the facilitation of specific qualities inherent in effective values conversations, such as vitality, choice, present-focused awareness, and willing vulnerability. This book will help you move away from basic techniques and exercises and toward the nuance and skills you need to do effective values work . You'll also learn how to use these tools, with detailed scripts for in-session exercises, handouts for clients, homework ideas, assessment and tracking tools, case examples, practical vignettes, and more. Whether you're an ACT clinician, or simply looking to incorporate values-based work into your treatment, this essential guide provides everything you need to help clients connect with what really matters to them, so they can live full and meaningful lives.

"This is a wonderfully important book which reminds us that the goal of therapy and living well is not simply to eradicate pain, discomfort, or suffering, but to discover what we truly value; a task that requires us to be open to these important life experiences. A real breath of fresh air at a time when our definitions of happiness and many popular treatments for mental illness have been overly influenced by the feel-good movement." --Brock Bastian, PhD, professor in the department of psychology at the University of Melbourne, and author of The Other Side of Happiness--Brock Bastian, PhD "Spend time with this book and it will change the way you interact not only with your clients, but also with yourself, your loved ones, and most likely all of your interactions. Filling life with meaning, connection, and curiosity is at the very heart of this well-written book. It is a great addition to your library no matter if you are early in your therapeutic career, or an experienced therapist. This book is a gold mine!" --Tobias Lundgren, PhD, assistant professor and research group leader in the department of clinical neuroscience, and head of health care development at the Center for Psychiatry Research at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden; and author and coauthor of numerous research articles and books, including The Art and Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy--Tobias Lundgren, PhD "Jenna LeJeune and Jason Luoma have shared with us a book about living a meaningful life guided by values that comes from their hearts truly. This work matters to them, and you see and feel it in their writing. Values in Therapy is a clinician's guide designed to not only assist us in helping clients to imagine and engage their deepest purpose, it is also about imagining and engaging our own. The clinical examples are thoughtfully presented, and the self-directed 'inside out' work invites clinicians to be curious about their own values-based actions and the meaning they create. This is a must-read book for all therapists, not simply those interested in ACT. Learning what it means to be alive and creating--to live well and with vitality is the essence of this book." --Robyn D. Walser, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist, author of The Heart of ACT, and coauthor of The Mindful Couple and Learning ACT--Robyn D. Walser, PhD "If you want to help your clients build richer, more meaningful lives, develop a sense of purpose and fulfillment, and find motivation and inspiration from deep within, then you need this book. The authors take you step by step through the use of values to enrich and enhance any type of therapy. Loaded with simple but powerful exercises and tools, and a wealth of case examples, this is a truly practical guide for helping your clients to harness the power of values and use it for profound transformation." --Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap and ACT Made Simple--Russ Harris "How many sunsets do you have left? Strong scripts, suggested exercises and homework, nuanced troubleshooting, and sticky metaphors all vividly show clinical methods to build lives worth living. Surprisingly creative later chapters give even experienced therapists new directions. This book is worth the investment." --Kelly Koerner, PhD, author of Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy--Kelly Koerner, PhD "Fresh, comprehensive, and clear, if you must choose only one book about values in therapy, choose this one. It covers every topic of importance with grace, never letting the authors' obvious sophistication get in the way of serving the needs of the reader. You will feel supported and empowered, and your clients will be uplifted. Whether or not you are an acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) clinician, if you care about values work in therapy, this is the book you have been waiting for." --Steven C. Hayes, PhD, Foundation Professor in the department of psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno
