HASH(0x95c77f90) out of 5 stars Coaching With ACT April 24 2008
By Dr. Russell Harris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0x95c77dc8) out of 5 stars A Must for Coaches June 5 2013
By Craig Abee - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
