Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of behavioral therapy that is based on the concept that oftentimes, we do not have control over what we think or how we feel, and that our attempts to "control" or "push away" painful thoughts and feelings not only saps out physical and emotional strength, but also has the unintended consequence of pulling us away from living our lives by the values that matter most to us. ACT is founded on the idea of promoting the acceptance of painful internal experiences while making the commitment to act in a manner that is consistent with our values, which may ultimately lead to a more rewarding and meaningful life.
