Sabbath, thanks a million for recommending this book last month!

I am about a quarter of the way through and I think that it really is the cutting edge of behavioral therapy. The book is filled with the jargon of relational frame theory, and I'd be totally lost without first having done the lengthy tutorial at relationalframetheory.com. Although difficult, I have found both the tutorial and the book fascinating and worthwhile, but I'm thinking that most members on this board might rather wait for Dr. Hayes' first self-help book on the subject--to be released in October:

Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
by Steven Hayes

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... 1572244259

Another book that sounds promising based on its description, although designed for therapists and more expensive, is:

Acceptance And Commitment Therapy for Anxiety Disorders: A Practitioner's Treatment Guide to Using Mindfulness, Acceptance, And Values-based Behavior Change Strategies
by Georg H. Eifert, John P. Forsyth

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... 1572244275

The description says it will include a CD-ROM with PowerPoints, audio, and even electronic copies of all the worksheets. How's that for convenient!

First off, is your blog available to those that don't have access to the blog section?

I've gone through the tutorial. It certainly is intriguing. I was actually thinking before this that language is a problem for anxiety. I mean if I could stop forming sentences I could stop stressing myself out!

Nevertheless, i was disappointed that the tutorial doesn't really cover any solutions and that most of the literature so far is for professionals. It looks like a book for patients is coming out too soon enough though in October.
