    What Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based therapy used to treat a variety of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.

    ACT helps us change the way that we relate to our thoughts and experiences. Pain – both physical and emotional – is an inevitable part of life. Yet our most common response is to push it away, avoid it, or fight against it. While we do this to protect ourselves from further pain, this paradoxically results in suffering and gets in the way of us being able to find a solution to our problems.

    ACT urges us to accept all of our experiences (even the unpleasant ones) as they are and committing to changing our typical ways of responding. This is done through various cognitive (thought) and behavioral strategies.
