Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACBS LogoOne of the great things about ACT is the community's commitment to disseminating their ideas without nickel-and-diming people who want to learn. To that end, the Association of Contextual Behavioural Science has a fantastic range of resources for those wishing to learn & practice ACT. You do have to be a member of the association to access the materials, but they have an honour system for membership and you can join for as little as $1 in order to 'test the waters'. The materials range from helpful metaphors, worksheets, protocols, measures, and treatment manuals. There is a thriving community and you are welcome to submit your own materials.
