Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an empirically based psychological intervention that utilized acceptance and mindfulness strategies, along with commitment and behavioral change strategies with the goal of increasing psychological flexibility. Therapists who practice ACT employ metaphor, paradox, and experiential exercises to help clients learn to make healthy contact with feelings, thoughts, sensations, and memories that have been feared and avoided. ACT is based on the idea that psychological suffering is usually caused by the interaction between language and cognition, and the control of behavior by direct experience. ACT helps clients and therapists to change the way difficult private experiences (thoughts, feelings, memories, etc.) function mentally rather than having to fully eliminate them. By doing this, ACT helps clients cope effectively with a variety of difficulties including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and many more.
