The client takes the lead and the rehab staff follows providing support only when asked for. The other main difference in this ACT model for chronic pain is the functional analysis and treatment of client’s language. Rather than working with dysfunctional thoughts associated with pain, which was done previously, ACT introduces a radically different approach far more consistent with functional analysis. Function rather than content of language including thoughts characterized all therapeutic interactions, which literally ended most all conflicts.

You will find protocols, actual session transcripts over dialogues illustrating each component of the ACT therapy. In addition to doing therapy with clients, there is also a chapter dedicated to using these same ACT principles in consulting with rehab staff and other psychologists feeling “burned out”. From an ACT perspective, care providers and even systems of care providers suffer from the same “problem” that plagues our clients.

It was different when I had my health. So I can understand that he wants someone young and healthy to do my job, instead of me.
