ACT in Action: 6-Video Series
If you’re interested in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, this in-depth, 6-video series will teach you all you want to know and more. You’ll be introduced to the core ACT concepts by Steven Hayes, and learn by watching numerous sessions conducted by Hayes and other leading ACT practitioners with a variety of clients.
ACT has quickly established itself as a leading “3rd wave” approach in the behavioral therapy tradition. However, unlike CBT, which emphasizes helping a client modify irrational or unhelpful thoughts, the underlying philosophy of ACT is that trying to change or even fix ourselves often exacerbates our symptoms–and thus acceptance is key.
ACT brings together the best of many worlds: it integrates mindfulness into a coherent system of therapy (long before mindfulness was all the rage), and at the same time extensive research on ACT with a variety of populations has helped it to achieved the status of an evidence-based approach, recognized as such by the American Psychological Association and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Government.

If you want to deepen your understanding of ACT, and develop your skills as an ACT practitioner–or just add some touches of ACT to the work you’re already doing–you really can’t go wrong with this series. Aside from getting personal supervision with a skilled ACT trainer, there’s no better way to learn this system. But if you’re not sure whether ACT is an approach that is right for you, you might want to read the article by Russ Harris, as well as the interview by Steven Hayes.
As Russ Harris writes, “Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, known as ‘ACT’ (pronounced as the word ‘act’) is a mindfulness-based behavioral therapy that challenges the ground rules of most Western psychology. It utilizes an eclectic mix of metaphor, paradox, and mindfulness skills, along with a wide range of experiential exercises and values-guided behavioral interventions. ACT has proven effective with a diverse range of clinical conditions: depression, OCD, workplace stress, chronic pain, the stress of terminal cancer, anxiety, PTSD, anorexia, heroin abuse, marijuana abuse, and even schizophrenia.”
Hayes is indeed an impressive character: on top of an extremely successful career as a behavioral researcher, he co-developed ACT with Kelly Wilson and Kirk Strosahl. As you’ll see on these videos, he has a powerful presence. But he makes it clear that he is not interested in having students imitate him, but instead he wants practitioners to find what is useful in ACT and apply it to their own works. As he stated in our interview, “ACT processes and procedures allow you to fit what you’re doing to the needs of an individual and create things on the fly and do things that make sense to you clinically, and yet know that you’re practicing inside an evidence-based care framework. It’s nice to not have to check your mind at the door and leave behind some of the deeper clinical issues that interest you. You don’t have to minimize or dismiss the complexity of human beings in order to make it on the list of evidence-based treatments.”
