What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or “ACT”) is an empirically supported behavioral treatment. ACT has hundreds of Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) demonstrating its effectiveness in treating a wide range of diagnoses. Additionally, ACT is a treatment developed from basic research on learning principles (i.e., behavior analysis and Relational Frame Theory; RFT). ACT has been recognized as by the American Psychological Association, Society of Clinical Psychology, Div 12 as a treatment with modest to strong effectiveness at treating a number of common problems of human suffering, including chronic pain, depression, mixed anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis.
