ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

ACT, which stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, is an approach to counseling that focuses on helping clients to accept their emotions as normal and valid while also encouraging flexibility in one’s thinking. It includes what are called “6 core processes”: Acceptance, Cognitive Diffusion, Contacting the Present Moment, Self As Context, Values, and Committed Action. ACT incorporates the use of mindfulness skills in helping clients be present focused as well as an understanding that our thoughts are just thoughts. To be able to not become entangled in our thoughts, and therefore to give thoughts permission to be, is an important concept in the ACT model.
