Acceptance&commitment therapy (ACT)

ACT targets a person’s tendency to avoid things.

  • It introduces the idea of achieving a state of mind where people are able to notice the problematic thoughts, feelings, or behaviours but not be overwhelmed or consumed by them (the “acceptance” part.)
  • It encourages people to identify values that are important to them and figure out ways their day-to-day life can reflect these values (the commitment part).
