Example text

Adolescents tell us about commonly used distractions such as hours spent on social media (Facebook and Twitter, for example), playing with their cell phones, sleeping, or listening to music. They tell us about events or people they avoid (parties or other social functions, school, studying, family gatherings, and so on) and strategies they use interpersonally to avoid being rejected (such as excessively helping others, always presenting themselves as happy, or never asserting their own opinion).

We outline our assessment with individual clients first and then describe modifications for group-­based ACT. Throughout this book, modifications will only be described that depart from the content in the earlier description of individual therapy. When there is no mention of some topic in the description of group modifications, you can assume it is the same as in the individual therapy. To provide a context for this session and the next, we will return to our fictional client, Marilyn, who you will remember was suffering from a need to be perfect in order to feel secure that others would love her.

This is transformation of stimulus function. Over time, the child will generalize the concept of “dog” to include different types of four-­legged creatures, so that Australian shepherds, poodles, Chihuahuas, and Rottweilers, for example, are each referred to as “dog,” and are responded to similarly.
