ACCEPTANCE COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) takes a radical approach to what ails people. It suggests that the struggle to be happy, the endless days and sometimes decades of trying to be different than you are is not only futile, but life and joy draining. It asks people to let go of that struggle, and to commit to a life that is meaningful to them. ACT trained therapists teach you how to let go of struggle, how to proceed mindfully in spite of troubles and how to determine what is meaningful to you. Finally, it teaches you to act, to move purposefully and daily towards a life in line with your own personal values.
