Be Present. Open Up. Do What it takes.
That’s the essence of ACT.
ACT (Pronounced as the word “Act” rather than A-C-T) stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or Training). It was developed by Steven C. Hayes and has been popularised by Dr. Russ Harris in his book “The Happiness Trap“.
What is Acceptance & Commitment Therapy?
“Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets it name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.
The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life. ACT (which is pronounced as the word ‘act’, not as the initials) does this by:
a) teaching you psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you (these are known as mindfulness skills).
b) helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.” Dr. Russ Harris.
ACT is supported by exhaustive studies and academic research.
