About the Author

Editor Steven C. Hayes, PhD, is Nevada Foundation Professor at the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada. An author of 34 books and more than 470 scientific articles, he has shown in his research how language and thought leads to human suffering, and has developed acceptance and commitment therapy, a powerful therapy method that is useful in a wide variety of areas. Hayes has been president of several scientific societies and has received several national awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy. Editor Michael E. Levin, MA, is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno and a research associate with Contextual Change, LLC. He has been a principal investigator on two federally funded grants, seeking to develop and test web-based acceptance and mindfulness-based interventions for the prevention and treatment of mental health problems. Levin has published over twenty articles and chapters related to addictive behaviours and acceptance and mindfulness-based interventions.


"Steven C. Hayes and Michael E. Levin have put together a must-read for researchers, clinicians, and students of addictive behaviors and their treatment. This very substantive book is refreshingly diverse in both theoretical perspectives and clinical contexts of varying addictive behaviors. Held together by contextual cognitive behavioral therapy as a unifying theme, perspectives discussed include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectic behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP), motivational interviewing (MI), and metacognitive therapy (MCT), among others. Clinical problem areas range from detoxification, problem drinking, problem gambling, substance dependence (including borderline personality disorder), binge eating, shame and stigma associated with addictions, pornography addiction, and smoking cessation. With the unifying theme of teaching clients new ways of relating to their experiences, including distressing thoughts, feelings, and sensations, this book marks the progress that already has been achieved in these areas, while at the same time providing a roadmap for exciting future directions." --Richard A. Brown, PhD, professor in the department of psychiatry and human behavior at Alpert Medical School of Brown University and director of addictions research at Butler Hospital "The addiction field is blessed with a variety of paths to recovery, and this volume presents cutting-edge, theory-based alternatives to traditional approaches. It explores some frontiers from which a next generation of addiction treatments is likely to emerge." --William R. Miller, PhD, emeritus-distinguished professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of New Mexico "Written in the same spirit of creativity and discovery that has propelled 'third wave therapies' into the mainstream, Levin, Hayes, and their contributors compellingly illustrate how acceptance, mindfulness, and context are vital resources in reducing the seemingly intractable suffering caused by addictive behavior." --Zindel Segal, PhD, author of The Mindful Way through Depression
