Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
What is ACT?
What is Acceptance & Commitment Therapy?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets its name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to value based action that improves and enriches your life.
The aim of ACT (which is pronounced ‘act’) is to maximise human potential with psychological flexibility for a rich, full and meaningful life, despite unhelpful thinking, uncomfortable feelings.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
What is DBT?
DBT is closely related to CBT, and was initially developed by Marsha Linehan for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder who cope with distressing emotions and situations by using self-destructive behaviours such as self-harm, substance abuse and eating disorders. DBT is now being used for treating other mental health conditions.
Individuals learn more helpful coping skills to deal with distressing emotions and situations, and to improve their relationships.
Dialectics is the theory that opposites can co-exist. In therapy, different points of view are discussed, and clients are then helped to select appropriate skills to either change or accept situations.
