What The Creator of ACT Says About ACT FOR TREATING CHILDREN:

“A beautifully written and comprehensive book that addresses every aspect of the use of ACT methods with children. In addition to putting forth a treasure trove of new materials and new ideas, I love how it builds out classic ACT methods in ways that are thoroughly age appropriate and yet recognizable, so that practitioners can follow Tamar's lead and begin to apply other things they may know about ACT in creative new ways as well. A transformational book that every practitioner who works with children should have at arm's reach.”

What The Creator of ACT Says About

“An awesome book specifically tailored for children ages eight to twelve. Through relatable stories, this workbook offers simple, practical activities that will help kids navigate their worry, sadness, anger, and other intense emotions. Whether used independently or alongside a parent or therapist, the exercises are a transformative tool to empower kids to deal with their thoughts and feelings with greater awareness, effectiveness, and self-kindness. Bravo to Tamar for providing a gift that promises to contribute throughout the course of the developmental period and beyond.”
