About the Course:

This course presents the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and how to apply them. ACT is a new approach to psychotherapy that rethinks even our most basic assumptions of mental well-being. The process of ACT includes help for individuals to identify a core set of values; a personal set of objectives that matter to them. Individuals learn to to engage with and overcome painful thoughts and feelings with step-by-step acceptance and mindfulness-based techniques. This book offers a way out of suffering by choosing to live a life based on what matters most.

This course is based on the book, Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy created by Steven C. Hayes, Ph.D. with Spencer Smith in 2005.
