This may just be a personal preference of ours, but we value practicality. At its core ACT is a behavioral theory, and it’s about taking action. Treatment focuses on an individual’s values and using them to guide, motivate and inspire.
ACT is not just for treating mental illness. Most of the distress and dysfunction people experience is the result of ineffectively utilized mental and behavioral responses to their environment. Because thoughts, emotions, and behaviors underlie all human conscious experience, ACT can be useful in a wide-range of human pursuits including improving physical health, career advancement, and even spirituality.
