Book Description

The MAC approach developed by connecting the more traditional scientific knowledge base on human performance and self-regulation to more contemporary findings to do with meta-cognitive processes, emotion regulation, and acceptance-based behavioral interventions. Written by the originators of the MAC model, this book will provide both the necessary theory, empirical background, and a structured step-by-step, easy-to-use protocol for the understanding, assessment, conceptualization, and enhancement of human performance. It is a protocol that can be readily adapted for a wide variety of high-performing clientele--from athletes and business people, to sales people, professionals in a variety of fields, and emergency/military personnel. The material can be integrated by practicing clinicians as an adjunctive intervention strategy to help clients with specific performance problems. Numerous case examples, forms, handouts, in- and out-of-session assignments and activities, and verbatim client instructions are included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coaching With ACT April 24 2008
By Dr. Russell Harris - Published on
This book is all about applying mindfulness and values, using the empirically-supported model known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to the field of performance enhancement. The focus is especially on sport and business, but really applies to any field of human endeavour. It's a superbly written book, of huge value to any coaches out there, and to any one who works with organizations or sports. It's also very informative for therapists - because he looks at the whole gamut of performance issues, from high functioning clients with no DSM criteria, to lower-functioning clients that do meet DSM criteria. And it's great to see how he adapts the ACT language and metaphors and interventions for non-clinical populations. Therapists often think about moving into coaching, and when they do so, most coaching models or courses draw a set of arbitrary distinctions between what is coaching and what is counselling. ACT really makes a nonsense of that dividing line, and this book shows it. So if any of you therapists out there are wanting to start coaching - forget doing a coaching course - read Frank's book instead.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Coaches June 5 2013

While the book can be technical and a bit hard to follow at times, there are certainly enough gold nuggets if you are will to read and re-read parts. Has some practical suggestions for hands on use of ideas.
