Wisdom that's been inspiring, motivating, and guiding teachers for two decades The Courage to Teach speaks to the joys and pains that teachers of every sort know well. Over the last 20 years, the book has helped countless educators reignite their passion, redirect their practice, and deal with the many pressures that accompany their vital work. Enriched by a new Foreword from Diana Chapman Walsh, the book builds on a simple premise: good teaching can never be reduced to technique. Good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher, that core of self where intellect, emotion, and spirit converge—enabling 'live encounters' between teachers, students, and subjects that are the key to deep and lasting learning. Good teachers love learners, learning, and the teaching life in a way that builds trust with students and colleagues, animates their daily practice, and keeps them coming back tomorrow. Reclaim your own vision and purpose against the threat of burn-out Understand why good teaching cannot be reduced to technique alone Explore and practice the relational traits that good teachers have in common Learn how to forge learning connections with your students and "teach across the gap" Whether used for personal study, book club exploration, or professional development, The Courage to Teach is rich with time-honored wisdom, and contemporary clarity about the ancient arts of teaching and learning.

Against my better judgment, I found myself falling in love with the people in this book. I was reminded of the mediaeval 'scholares vagantes' (wandering scholars) with Peggy like a modern day tour guide whose itinerary was to have us travel from place to place, teacher to teacher, seeking wisdoms. - DAVID EPSTON, MSW, Co-founder, Narrative Therapy, . From the foreword. This is a breakthrough book. It offers teachers and students in human service work a way to transcend classroom walls (and mindsets) by adding the fifth dimension of the World Wide Web. Any teacher, any student of relationship therapy will be inspired by the many examples of the effect of "learning on a cloud" that Sax puts into her spacecraft of a delicious, lively book. - LYNN HOFFMAN, LICSW, Author, Exchanging Voices: A collaborative approach to family therapy; Family Therapy: An Intimate Journey Peggy Sax provides a model to aspire to of how online learning platforms can be used to enrich systematic learning. I know of no better account of how to teach and to learn therapeutic practice in the era of online learning. Without being taught in any didactic or pedantic way, you cannot help but find yourself responding, reflecting and learning. - JOHN WINSLADE, PHD, Coordinator of Educational Counseling Program, Dept of Educational Psychology & Counseling, California State University San Bernardino One does not 'read' so much as 'engage' with the pages of this book, positioning the reader as an active participant in the learning process. As a newer instructor, I was inspired to expand upon my collaborative processes in the classroom, through the increased use of technology and dialogue between students, practitioners and consumers. As a student, it is a rare experience to read a text that simultaneously introduces and embodies the theoretical framework that it espouses. - BETH PRULLAGE, LICSW, Doctoral Candidate, Simmons College School of Social Work, Adjunct Faculty, Simmons College SSW and Smith College SSW As a teacher I was engaged from the first page in reflecting on extending my own teaching practices. I am left with all this lovely space to play with the ideas Peggy and her students have so generously offered. - AILEEN CHESHIRE, M.COUNS., Counselling Co-ordinator, Bachelor of Social Practice, Unitec, Auckland, New Zealand Peggy Sax's book incited my imagination to look at my "growing edge" as a teacher-practitioner, inspiring me to review the principles and beliefs I hold dear and to reflect on the congruency between the cherished values of Narrative Therapy and the values and purposes expressed in the teaching relationship. - MARTA CAMPILLO, MA, Director of Centro de Atencion Psicologica a la Familia AC, Xalapa Veracruz Mexico Peggy Sax, PhD, is in independent practice in Middlebury, Vermont, USA, as a licensed psychologist, consultant, workshop presenter and university instructor.

Metaphors and exercises play an incredibly important part in the successful delivery of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These powerful tools go far in helping clients connect with their values and give them the motivation needed to make a real, conscious commitment to change. Unfortunately, many of the metaphors that clinicians use have become stale and ineffective. That’s why you need fresh, new resources for your professional library. In this breakthrough book, two ACT researchers provide an essential A-Z resource guide that includes tons of new metaphors and experiential exercises to help promote client acceptance, defusion from troubling thoughts, and values-based action. The book also includes scripts tailored to different client populations, and special metaphors and exercises that address unique problems that may sometimes arise in your therapy sessions. Several ACT texts and workbooks have been published for the treatment of a variety of psychological problems. However, no one resource exists where you can find an exhaustive list of metaphors and experiential exercises geared toward the six core elements of ACT. Whether you are treating a client with anxiety, depression, trauma, or an eating disorder, this book will provide you with the skills needed to improve lives, one exercise at a time. With a special foreword by ACT cofounder Steven C. Hayes, PhD, this book is a must-have for any ACT Practitioner.
