Description

Since Sigmund Freud published his famous case studies on the Rat Man and others, annotated case transcriptions have been a vital tool for the study and teaching of clinical psychology. These works involve records of the proceedings of client sessions, interpreted and illuminated by the therapists who conduct the interviews. Reading annotated transcripts gives clinicians a chance to prepare for the kinds of situations and problems that come up in their own work. This volume is the first annotated client transcript prepared using the processes of the new and innovative acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).Here readers will find clinical transcripts of nine therapy sessions with a client who struggles with anger and depression, moderated by renowned psychologist and ACT founder Steven Hayes. Throughout the work, annotation will give the reader some idea of how the client is functioning with respect to the six ACT core processes. Since ACT is process rather than technique-oriented, this kind of 'in the moment' analysis is singularly effective way to learn how to effect the therapy. At the end of each session, the commentators address how well the client is progressing in an ACT sense and give suggestions about how future sessions could be structured for maximum progress.
