Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based treatment that can help you develop mindfulness skills that promote psychological flexibility. ACT can also help you to incorporate the use of values to guide behavioral change.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is an extension of relational frame theory, which is a theory that specializes in how people learn and understand language. The goal of ACT is to help provide you with the opportunity to learn how to use mindfulness to experience the many emotions of life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy was developed by Steven Hayes, Ph.D., and builds on the “third ware” tradition of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with the use of mindfulness and acceptance strategies to build psychological flexibility.

What Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Treats

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is helpful for a wide variety of people, especially those who are suffering from a psychological or behavioral disorder. Some of the most common disorders treated with ACT include the following:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is highly effective when treating these particular disorders, as it helps clients accept their psychological situation and commit themselves to their own personal recovery.

Evidence Behind Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

In the past, small studies of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy programs have had conflicting results because of the extremely small sample. As of 2011, ACT has gained more attention and has been tested in a more detailed manner.

The American Psychological Association labeled ACT an empirically validated treatment for “modest research support” in depression and “strong research support” in chronic pain. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has also reviewed numerous studies pertaining to ACT’s effectiveness and, as a result, considers Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to be an evidence-based therapy.

Though Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is still considered to be a newer form of evidence-based therapy, it is quickly gaining attention for its ability to help change destructive behaviors in individuals struggling with behavioral disorders.
