Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is difficult for many to understand because it’s not how we typically think about or approach problems. ACT focuses on six psychological processes that are believed to be at the core of our struggles and mental well-being.
One major benefit of ACT is psychological flexibility, but the journey can be challenging to many. With this flexibility, though, folks encountering difficult times—mental condition or not—can better adapt to whatever life throws their way.
In this session, Jason Krompinger, PhD, facilitates an open conversation about ACT, discusses its effectiveness beyond OCD treatments, and answers questions about how through the psychological processes of this therapy, we can all become more mentally flexible.
