Example text

We are particularly grateful to Steven Hayes, who has generously made his work and ideas available to us from the very start of this project—including giving us a copy of an unpublished ACT treatment manual for agoraphobia that he and his colleagues developed back in 1990. We are also grateful to Kelly Wilson and Joanne Dahl for sharing with us their work on values, which included assessment tools, illustrations, and therapist-client dialogues. We thank Hank Robb for allowing us to include his version of the famous serenity prayer and Peter Thorne, a British clinical psychologist, for letting us use his “Bad News Radio” metaphor in this book—and thanks also to Steven Hayes for letting us reprint his rewording of part of that metaphor.

Thus, what you learn in this volume should apply, with some modification, to several other clinical problems and to those comorbid problems faced by your patients This book opens a door into a clinical approach that is both familiar and strange; both evolutionary and revolutionary; both broader and yet more focused than what has gone before. It will become clear very quickly that, yes, this is behavior therapy, but it is also behavior therapy pointed in a new direction. The possibilities are exciting; this book will help other clinicians and researchers discover if the possibilities are real.

For instance, individuals with specific phobias do not really avoid snakes, elevators, or airplanes per se. They avoid experiencing paniclike responses in the presence of these stimuli (Forsyth & Eifert, 1996). Likewise, combat veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder do not avoid the sound of helicopters simply because they are afraid of them. They avoid the intense negative affect that is associated with that sound and its potential to remind them of past traumas that they wish not to think about.
