URL :  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy For Depression in Veterans
Author : Robyn D. Walser, Ph.D. - Katie Sears,Ph.D. - Maggie Chartier, M.P.H., Ph.D. - Bradley E. Karlin, Ph.D.
Detail : eBook Edition: 2012

This manual was created to support implementation of ACT-D for Veterans within and outside of VHA. The therapy protocol presented in this manual was adapted specifically for use with Veterans and is based on research and clinical experience. The manual includes clinical examples and other content designed to promote the accessibility and usefulness of this resource.

This manual provides straightforward steps for each session and includes highlighted boxes with clinical definitions and things to know, Veteran spotlights related to specific implementation issues with Veterans, clinical watch boxes that alert the therapist to important clinical issues, theoretical underpinnings that guide preparation for sessions, example patient-therapist dialogueand, lastly, patient handouts.

This protocol is born out of a behavioral principles and a behavioral theory of language, and uses behavioral principles and individualized case conceptualization to support a functional understanding of behavior in order to best guide the clinical intervention for specific patients. It is important to note that while readers may have interest in implementing ACT for conditions other than depression, the focus of this manual and the dissemination of ACT in VHA is on the treatment of depression. It is also important to note that this manual is not a substitute for competency-based training in ACT-D, but can be a useful resource to those receiving or who have received specific training in ACT.
