Introduction to ACT Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy system that combines different psychological concepts and techniques for treating psychological suffering. It seeks to promote psychological flexibility, or the ability to remain in contact with our experiences without getting overwhelmed or avoiding them. It helps individuals gain insight, cope with difficult thoughts, and make meaningful life changes. ACT has become increasingly popular as an approach to mental health treatment and is used to treat a variety of mental health issues, including depression and anxiety.
The primary goal of ACT is to reduce psychological suffering by increasing psychological flexibility and helping to create a meaningful life direction. This article will explore the benefits of ACT therapy, and explain how it works.
