Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychological therapy that focuses on helping individuals accept their thoughts and feelings rather than trying to eliminate or suppress them. It emphasizes the importance of mindfulness, values, and committed action to enhance psychological flexibility and well-being.
ACT aims to help people develop a healthier relationship with their thoughts and emotions, enabling them to make values-based choices and take meaningful actions to improve their quality of life. The therapy encourages clients to be present in the moment, identify their core values, and pursue actions that align with those values, even in the presence of discomfort or difficult emotions.
