A,Happy,Multiracial,Client,Is,Sitting,In,The,Office,WithIf you’re looking for an action-oriented therapeutic approach that puts you in control of how you move forward, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) may be a good fit. Many people find that going through ACT allows them to change their attitude and approach to life. Here, we’ll take a look at the basic principles that guide mental health professionals at Revitalize Mental Health PLLC when it comes to ACT.

What to Expect in an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Session

The goal of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is to enhance psychological flexibility, enabling individuals to be fully present and adapt their behaviors in alignment with their values. This therapy approach aims to help you embrace and effectively manage your emotions. ACT wants you to understand that your emotions can be valid reactions to the circumstances and that they do not need to hinder your progress in life.

When you come in for an ACT session, your therapist will talk with you about how you talk to yourself about relationships, friendships, traumatic events, and more. Together, you’ll decide whether a problem requires action right away or if you need to work toward acceptance.

Who Can Benefit From Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy can help people who are living with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Psychosis
  • General stress
  • Substance use disorders
  • Eating disorders

ACT promotes a mindset that embraces adaptability and resilience when confronted with difficulties while encouraging active participation in one’s personal journey. The end result is greater life satisfaction in the face of a wide variety of mental and physical challenges.

You don’t need to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from ACT. A willingness to work through your past and move forward is all that you need to benefit from ACT.

ACT can help you:

  • Embrace and acknowledge negative thoughts, feelings, and events
  • Acknowledge and understand the presence of emotional distress as a natural aspect of being human
  • Discover the art of embracing life, even in the face of unexpected obstacles
  • Embrace the present moment with a heightened sense of awareness
  • Adapt or continue with behavior when it aligns with important goals
