Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a psychological treatment approach that can be delivered not only on a one-to-one basis but also to groups and in self-help formats.
However, the evidence base supporting individual ACT is more extensive than the research regarding ACT with groups.
Within our community based courses we outline the different forms that group training takes, the way in which it may benefit people and the current evidence base supporting its use for anxiety and depression. It also outlines the advantages of group or individual ACT and describes those patients who appear to be best suited to a specific delivery.
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It’s most commonly used to treat anxiety, anger and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
ACT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.
ACT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.
Unlike some other talking treatments, ACT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
