Basic Science Essays Examples

Printer-friendly version

As part of your application to become a peer reviewed ACT trainer you need to show a good level of knowledge of how ACT and ACT training is underpinned by basic science and philosophy (RFT, Behavior Analysis, & Functional Contextualism).

The Training Committee has collected a few examples of the basic science essays to help applicants understand what they are looking for. The example essays include comments explaining what worked and what didn't, as well as the final decision (pass or fail). 

Example 1 essays passed without needing revisions. Examples 2 and 3 both needed revisions before passing (both versions are included).
