Acceptance and Commitment Training

Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) teaches mindfulness skills to help people behave in a manner that is congruent with their highest values while cultivating greater psychological flexibility. By learning to recognize and accept what is not in our control, we make space for values-based actions that support our well-being.
