Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
How Does ACT Work?
Utilizing ACT in Treatment
Since there’s no way to completely avoid life’s challenges, ACT aims to help clients regarding productive ways to respond when difficulties arise.With assistance from a skilled therapist, clients learn that it’s counterproductive to ignore their problems or suppress their emotions. They learn self-compassion instead of always judging themselves harshly.
The benefits of ACT include allowing clients to give themselves permission to make mistakes and move on from them, as well as teaching them to control how they react in various situations.
