Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is an empirically-based psychological intervention that emphasizes such processes as mindfulness, acceptance, and values in helping clients overcome obstacles. It helps people learn ways to let go of the struggle with pain, be more mindful, get clarity on what really matters to them, and to commit to living full, vibrant lives. The goal of ACT is to teach you psychological skills to deal with painful thoughts and feelings effectively, and to help you clarify what’s truly important and meaningful to you.
