A Snapshot of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Updated: May 31
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is based on helping individuals live how they want to be living. In ACT we try to help people be more flexible psychologically and less stuck in patterns of thoughts and behaviours.
The Hexaflex below from Nesh Nikolic shows the six core principles of ACT in one simple image.
I love this particular diagram because it is comprehensive with clear descriptions of each of the principles.
You can find articles related to each of these principles on my blog:
