Publisher: Junfermann Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783955710019
Release Date: 2014-03-12
Genre: Psychology

Die Akzeptanz- & Commitment-Therapie, kurz ACT, ist eine moderne Verhaltenstherapie. Im Gegensatz zu eher traditionellen kognitiven Verhaltenstherapien zielt die ACT nicht darauf ab, unerwünschte Gedanken oder Emotionen zu reduzieren oder zu eliminieren. Die Klienten lernen stattdessen, ihre Energie auf ein zufriedenstellendes Leben zu fokussieren, und zwar trotz negativer Gedanken und Empfindungen. Dieses Buch demonstriert übersichtlich und einprägsam, wie das gelingen kann. Wie hat sich die ACT entwickelt? Was sind ihre typischen Kennzeichnen? Und wie grenzt sie sich von anderen Therapien ab? Hier erhalten Sie eine fundierte Einführung. Das Buch ist ein weiterer Band aus der Reihe „Therapeutische Skills kompakt“, in der Theorie und Praxis einzelner Therapieformen fundiert und kurzweilig vorgestellt werden.
