More about Acceptance and commitment therapy

“ACT is derived from functional contexualism and relational frame theory. These are some unwieldy terms! The concepts behind them are also highly abstract and quite complex. Nonetheless, they can be distilled down to one fundamental principle: Words (and the thoughts formed with words) have an individual and unique meaning. That meaning is dependent upon the person and the context in which the learning took place. In other words, thoughts have no meaning or truth other than the one we assign to them. The overall premise of ACT is the meaning and importance we assign to our thoughts, perpetuates our emotional suffering. Furthermore, since we are the ones who assign that meaning, we can just as easily assign a different meaning that causes us less suffering.” – from the article on Acceptance And Commitment Therapy (ACT) For Obsessive-Compulsive And Related Disorders
