More information about ACT
Everybody experiences painful thoughts and emotions that get under our skin–hooking us and reeling us in. Day to day, we’re often so distracted by our painful thoughts and feelings that we lose sight of what’s important to us, and move away from our values. Mindfulness training teaches us how to identify and let go of many of distracting thoughts and and unhelpful reactions. But what’s next? How can we move forward and create the life we want for ourselves?
Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) is designed to cultivate psychological flexibility, the key to living a valued life. Stretching our bodies cultivates the physical strength and flexibility we need to meet life’s diverse physical challenges; similarly, ACT cultivates the psychological flexibility we need to live more and struggle less. Based on cutting-edge new research in psychology, ACT offers powerful practical tools for optimizing growth, performance, health, and well-being.
