Interview with Rob Zettle, PhD, on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Depression has an interview with Rob Zettle, PhD, who, as the first graduate student of Steven Hayes, PhD, was involved in the development of what would eventually become Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Dr. Zettle is also the author of the book, ACT for Depression.

Dr. Trent Codd interviews Dr. Zettle about his early work in developing ACT and his work on using ACT to treat depression. (The American Psychological Association Division 12 officially recognized ACT as a research-supported treatment for depression.) The interview may a little technical for people unfamiliar ACT but provides a fascinating window into its early development.

The interview can be found on here.
