The resources on this page have been designed for psychologists, occupational health practitioners, mental health professionals, coaches, and trainers who might be interested in delivering the ACT-based training described in the book. It is important to read the book before attempting to make use of these resources, particularly if you are relatively new to the ACT approach.
The first set of links, immediately below, will take you to the participant handouts we describe in the book. All of these handouts are included in the book’s appendix, and we have also listed the page numbers where we first describe each handout.

The three documents provided in the additional material section offer the following: 1) an overview of the values-based action exercises we often employ in our workplace training; 2) an overview of methods for cultivating defusion and acceptance throughout ACT-based training; and 3) some key features of the ACT trainer stance required to deliver this type of program effectively.
