"It is impossible to construct a human life untouched by suffering."
Edwin Arlington Robinson

Acceptance and commitment therapy is an action-oriented approach to the therapeutic process. It comes from traditional therapies and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. ACT is designed to create greater psychological flexibility. 

The American Psychological Association (2012) defines the therapeutic process as therapists and clients working to establish psychological flexibility through six core ACT processes. These include acceptance, the opposite of experiential avoidance; cognitive defusion, in which negative thoughts are observed mindfully instead of avoided or reasoned away; chosen values; and committed action.

ACT can help many mental health issues, some of them include:

Anxiety disorders


Obsessive-compulsive disorder


Eating disorders

Substance use disorders

Workplace stress

Chronic pain
