The prevailing view among both therapists and clients is that a more vital life can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique behavior change approach based on Relational Frame Theory (RFT) that addresses this question by altering the very ground on which normal change strategies rest, emphasizing instead the role of acceptance, defusion, and values. ACT appears to apply not just to the clinic, but to a wide range of issues faced by human beings. This list serves as a forum for clinicians, scientists, and students who are members of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) to discuss current conceptual, scientific, and practice developments in ACT and RFT, which are part of a larger effort to create a progressive, coherent, scientific psychology more adequate to the challenges of the human condition.
