Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Fundamentals

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) blends mindfulness, de-fusing yourself from your thoughts and emotions, and committing to actions that are consistent with your values.  Rather than challenging negative thoughts, like what you might do in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), ACT focuses on acceptance, allowing thoughts to come and go as they please.  It may seem counterintuitive, but when you find out more, it starts to make a lot of sense.

Topics covered include:

  • present moment awareness
  • acceptance vs. avoidance
  • defusion from thoughts
  • compassion
  • changing your self-talk
  • values and committed actions

Length: 38 pages

The free Embrace Acceptance guided journal is also based on ACT.

Topics covered include:

  • the ABCs (activating event, beliefs, consequences)
