acceptance commitment therapy
Acceptance commitment therapy is a third wave CBT intervention, which simply means that it uses some of CBT’s principles but actually uses more mindfulness based strategies to produce positive change. ACT encourages psychological flexibility, both within our emotional states and our thinking. It teaches strategies such as mindfulness, which helps us to diffuse or separate from unhelpful thoughts and to create space within the body for intense emotions. It encourages people to not avoid, suppress or push away thoughts or feelings, rather to be curious and investigate them. It draws a lot from Buddhist psychology and philosophy which have shown very positive outcomes in neuroscience research.
