About Acceptance and Commitment Therapy:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an exciting and relatively young application of the principles of behavior analysis and Verbal Behavior to pervasive patterns of problem behavior. ‘The ACT approach’ is an application of Relational Frame Theory (RFT) that seeks specific results in behavior change through evidence-based technologies. ACT has strong roots in psychotherapy, but a lot is being done to take this treatment out of ‘the office’ and make it accessible to a variety of other fieldwork applications.
“Technologically, ACT uses both traditional behavior therapy techniques (defined broadly to include everything from cognitive therapy to behavior analysis), as well as others that are more recent or that have largely emerged from outside the behavior tradition…” (https://contextualscience.org/about_act)
