Overview of acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness for psychosis

Originating from cognitive behavioural traditions, mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies are emerging as promising evidence-based approaches to assist individuals struggling with symptoms of psychosis. These therapies prioritise transforming the relationship with atypical and troublesome experiences by fostering experiential openness, awareness, and engagement in actions aligned with personal values. In this book, researchers and clinicians from around the world delve into the prominent treatment models and research foundations of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and person-based cognitive therapy (PBCT), alongside the utilisation of mindfulness in both individual and group therapeutic settings. The book dedicates chapters to developing experiential interventions for addressing voices and paranoia, conducting assessments and case formulations, and exploring the integration of spirituality from a metacognitive perspective. It also offers insightful accounts of clients’ perspectives on their experiences with ACT and PBCT, along with providing clear protocols derived from clinical practice.
