The ultimate purpose of ACT and RFT is the creation of a progressive psychology more adequate to the challenge of human suffering. We are attempting to do this by fostering an open and responsible scientific culture that is non-hierarchical, self-critical, and that makes it easy for everyone to play a role.
In furtherance of these values the ACT Community has decided not to formally certify therapists, trusting an open process of development to weed out problems. We have felt the need to help others find ACT trainers, however, so that the early developers do not become de facto gate keepers, which could place a hierarchical and closed process at the heart of ACT development.
