Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a form of cognitive therapy offered to those with many different emotional and mental health issues—as well as physical issues like chronic pain and epilepsy. You might wonder if ACT is for you—if you have a behavior or thought process that causes you undue stress, worry, or fear, you can benefit from ACT.
ACT focuses on allowing a person to experience their issues and to accept them instead of trying to avoid them. The therapy practice helps a person to have a contextual understanding of certain behaviors, which will align with the values or rewards they would like to have. ACT encourages the person to capture their undesirable thoughts or actions and examine them instead of letting them pass or just acknowledging they have them. This examination should evolve into a correction and realignment to the behaviors and thoughts they would like to encourage.
ACT can be accomplished in a shorter treatment time than other therapies because it equips the patients with skills they can use on their own. The biggest success factor of acceptance and commitment therapy is its flexibility: You have tools you can use at any time and train yourself to use in any situation.
