Metaphor in Practice

Niklas Törneke
Authors:
Niklas Törneke

The use of metaphor is central to the implementation of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and is a powerful tool for all practicing psychotherapists. In Metaphor in Practice, psychotherapist Niklas Törneke presents the first practical book to combine the behavioral and linguistic sciences of metaphor, and illustrates how and when to apply metaphors in practice for better treatment outcomes.The use of metaphors and experiential exercises can help clients gain a deeper understanding of the problems that cause their disorders. Metaphors help clients connect with their values, and often spark the inspiration and motivation needed to make a commitment to change. And while metaphor is central to relational frame theory (RFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), research now shows its usefulness has an even broader reach.In this book, you'll find a scientific analysis of metaphor based on over thirty years of research, as well as trends in research over the last ten years. The book includes an overview of RFT, how metaphor has influenced the community of behavior analysis, as well as available clinical research on metaphor use. You'll also discover how to create metaphors for functional analysis, distance of observation, and things that matter to your client. Most importantly, you'll find practical examples of metaphors and clinical exercises you can use in-session.

Authors:
Gareth Holman, Jonathan Kanter, Mavis Tsai, Robert Kohlenberg

Functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) is a proven-effective treatment for mental health disorders, and has been shown to enhance the quality of interpersonal relationships. If you're a therapist, how you relate to your clients can have a profound impact on treatment outcomes. This book integrates the latest research on the importance of the therapist-client relationship with the new science of social connection into a user-friendly, contextual behavioral framework.In this book, you'll find an introduction of the promise and foundation of FAP with an emphasis on practice and reflection, and then dive deeper into each separate element of practice: assessment and case conceptualization, present-moment experience, emotions, self and values, exercises, mistakes in FAP, and getting "unstuck" in therapy. You'll also learn to help clients implement awareness, courage, and love as the basis of all social connection. Finally, you'll learn how this treatment model can be used to respond to some of the most challenging issues clinicians face, such as clients who aren't improving, clients with whom your relationship is very intense or volatile, clients who are hard to like, and clients with whom there is a lot of frustration or unspoken conflict.No matter your treatment background, this book will provide invaluable strategies for adopting functional analytic psychotherapy in your practice, enhancing relationships with your clients, and improving overall treatment outcomes.

Rule-Governed Behavior: Cognition, Contingencies, and Instructional Control

Steven C. Hayes
Authors:
Steven C. Hayes

Behavior analytic research on rule-governed behavior was first gathered in this book in 1989. Shortly after that time, the area slowed, perhaps in part due to the difficulties in distinguishing verbal from non-verbal processes within behavior analysis. Recently, however, there has been a notable pick up in interest in the topic. This previously out of print volume has been reprinted by Context Press in order to provide a readily accessible resource to behavioral psychologists as they move ahead in their research and practical work. Still current in many ways, the volume includes:B. F. Skinner on the behavior of the listenerHayne W. Reese on cognitive and behavioristic views of rule-governed behaviorMargaret Vaughan on the history of the concept of rule-governed behavior in behavior analysisCharles Catania, Eliot Shimoff, and Byron A. Matthews on the experimental analysis of rule-governed behaviorSteven C. Hayes and Linda J. Hayes on the verbal action of the listener as a basis of rule-governanceSteven C. Hayes, Robert D. Zettle, and Irwin Rosenfarb on functional units of rule-followingPhilip N. Hineline and Barbara A. Wanchisen on the distinction between contingency-shaped and rule-governed behaviorRichard W. Malott on control by rules describing contingencies that are not direct actingRoger L. Poppen on some clinical implications of rule-governed behaviorSteven C. Hayes, Barbara S. Kohlenberg, and Susan M. Melancon on avoiding and altering rule-control as a strategy of clinical intervention

Learning ACT

Jason B. Luoma
Authors:
Jason B. Luoma

Acceptance and commitment therapy is one of the most exciting developments in psychotherapy to occur in the last fifty years. ACT departs from conventional psychotherapeutic models, which strive to "fix", "control", or "get rid of" unwanted thoughts and behaviours. Instead, it demonstrates how to accept uncomfortable or painful situations without engaging with them, allowing them to pass away or diminish as they will. The therapy helps clients assess their own values and commit to acting on them in ways that lead to richer, more fulfilling lives. ACT is profound, revolutionary - and it works. As a result, thousand of therapists, new and experienced, are seeking to incorporate ACT work into their practices."Learning ACT" describes the six core therapeutic processes of ACT, outlining the theoretical background that sets the stage for the rest of the book. Then it outlines a process for case conceptualization from an ACT perspective and gives readers an opportunity to practice conceptualizing cases. Readers learn the ACT approach to establishing an effective and powerful therapeutic relationship and opportunities are provided for readers to practice their therapeutic relationship skills. A DVD included with the text offers role-played examples of the core ACT processes in action on both audio and video. In these examples, a picture is worth a thousand words, bringing to life the concepts developed in the text.
