Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT) is a form of cognitive behavioral psychotherapy. This therapy uses mindfulness and behavioral activation to increase clients' psychological flexibility--their ability to engage in values-based, positive behaviors while experiencing difficult thoughts, emotions or sensations.
ACT has been shown to:
- Increase effective action
- Reduce dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
- Alleviate psychological distress for a broad range of mental health issues
- Maximize human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life
ACT does this by:
- Teaching psychological skills to deal with painful thoughts and feelings effectively - in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over the individual.
- Helping to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to the individual; then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate a change for the better.
