Chapters are included on clients with multiple problems and the severely mentally ill. Further, the book cogently differentiates ACT from related modes of therapy. This user-friendly volume will be a welcome guide for practitioners and students alike. It offers both a cogent theoretical model and a clinical guide for all professionals who treat mental health problems, regardless of theoretical orientation.
