ACT is committed to a high standard of empirical evaluation. This includes not just controlled assessment and evaluations of outcomes but also the specification and evaluation moderations and of the putative processes of change. Furthermore, we also seek to understand the links between these processes of change and basic functional behavioral principles, including those drawn from RFT.
