Who created this website and why?

This website began as a fun side-project by Eric Fox (um, that's me but I figured I should write in the third person to make this all sound more official or something) in early 2005 when he decided it was time to update and combine the old RFT and ACT websites into a central site that was more dynamic and community-driven. Before he knew it, things had spiraled out of control and the new site kept getting bigger and more complex and an entire new professional association ([[ACBS]]) was formed that wrested control of the site from his greedy little hands. :) This site is now officially owned and operated by the [[acbs|Association for Contextual Behavioral Science]] (ACBS). The site's initial structure and policies were shaped by ACBS's [[planning committee]]. And, as we state on the home page, this website is dedicated to supporting the development of a progressive psychology and related behavioral sciences more adequate to the challenge of the human condition. Neat.
