ACT

ACT is also an acronym for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. The model of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is based on Relational Frame Theory.  Under this paradigm, feelings are to be observed without judgment or avoidance. Accepting what is out of our personal control, while committing to action which will improve our quality of life, is central to ACT. Acceptance is key says Natalie Kogan in her book, The Awesome Human Project. “Acceptance is the skill of acknowledging a situation and your feelings with clarity instead of getting caught up in the story your brain has created and using that as your starting point to decide the best way forward.” The link between acceptance and commitment, between being and doing, is profound.
