ACT with Faith Book Reviews

Dr Jennifer Gregg PH.D; Associate Professor, San Jose State University, San Jose, California, USA.

“This book is an incredible resource for anyone who seeks to speak the language of their Christian clients in therapy. Ingrid Ord has done a superb job bringing functional contextualism and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to Christians in a way that supports, and is supported by, their religion, and she expertly guides ACT therapists working with Christian clients who identify strongly with their faith. Through a rich assortment of scriptural references and client handouts, this book provides invaluable tools for working with Christian clients in a way that not only does not undermine or contradict Christian religious beliefs, but beautifully supports them.”

Joy R, ACT with Faith, pg 127,

“…. this I think is one of the most powerful tools you have ever shared with me, and… others. It’s so tangible and provides clarity when you are feeling ‘messy’. It’s a cross and yet feels like an anchor when you use it. I especially notice how men relate to a model that is so clear. The model and the ‘name’ provide relevance and respect for what this model is, does, and stands for. It is Christ centered and the name highlights this fact.”
