Acceptance and commitment therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a modern form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes accepting and embracing our thoughts and emotions, while also committing to actions aligned with our values. It was developed by Steven C. Hayes and his colleagues in the 1980s. ACT is a therapeutic approach that promotes psychological flexibility by encouraging acceptance of one's thoughts and feelings, clarifying personal values, and taking committed action toward a fulfilling life. It is designed to help individuals develop resilience and improve their overall well-being. It is also particularly effective in treating various mental health issues, including anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, and chronic pain.
