Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT and mindfulness-based therapies are empirically supported, third-wave behavior therapies. Their aims are to increase mindful awareness of thoughts and feelings, encourage willingness to experience these thoughts and feelings, and promote action in valued areas of life.

ACT and mindfulness-based interventions are supported by extensive ongoing research, including over 100 clinical trials with several thousand participants.

These studies have confirmed their efficacy as therapeutic approaches for a broad range of patient concerns, including (but not limited to) mood and anxiety disorders.
