MasterClass: Psychological Flexibility and Using ACT

This MasterClass will provide you with a general understanding of Acceptance Commitment Therapy, or ACT. The main objective of ACT is to increase psychological flexibility – the ability to contact with the present moment more fully as a conscious human being, and to change or persist in behavior when doing so serves valued ends. Psychological flexibility is established through six core ACT processes. Each of these areas is conceptualized as a positive psychological skill, not merely a method of avoiding psychopathology. ACT takes the view that trying to change difficult thoughts and feelings as a means of coping can be counter-productive, but new powerful alternatives are available, including acceptance, mindfulness, cognitive defusion, values, and committed action.
