Example text

1999). A Word About Mindfulness and ACT Mindfulness has been defined as “bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis” (Marlatt & Kristeller, 1999, p. 68). It is the practice of compassionate, moment-to-moment presence. It entails openness to experience and the practice of observing thoughts, feelings, and sensations as an ongoing flow of events that don’t necessarily need to be acted upon. ACT uses mindfulness 16 practice and various techniques to help the client establish this sense of openness.

The mind readily pulls us into its space, dragging us around like a fish being pulled on a hook. We get caught and away we go with what the mind has to say, rarely recognizing or being aware of this process. The mind is exceedingly tenacious, rarely giving us a break from its ongoing commentary on our lives, situations, and how we’re being in the world. On the one hand, the constant flow of thought so captures us, it’s difficult to see that thinking is what is happening every day and every moment.

Many of the imagery exercises help to make this reconnection. Describing this to clients can help them come to make the distinction between these two ways of knowing the world. 32 CHAPTER 3 Preparing to Begin The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it. —W. M. Lewis In this chapter we focus on how to introduce ACT to clients and review the overall structure of the therapy. It is designed to orient and provide general guidance to the therapist. , 2001; Hayes 2001, for a nice review).
