ACT with Special Populations or in Specific Settings

Printer-friendly version

ACT is a general model of the language and cognition processes involved in reducing psychological suffering and promoting human well-being. As such, it is not a specific set of techniques. Any ACT intervention is an instance of a general psychological strategy which is designed to be flexibly applied. ACT can be applied in short interventions done in minutes or hours, as well as in interventions which take many sessions. ACT can be used in groups, individual sessions, classroom settings, couples therapy, bibliotherapy, workplace trainings, and much more.
