• Basic premise: Clients learn to re-conceptualize avoided or feared thoughts, feelings, memories, and physical sensations in an adaptive manner.
  • Essence of therapy: The use of acceptance and mindfulness strategies help clients to be fully present in the moment and to accept otherwise negative emotions.  Commitment and behavior change strategies help clients to change or persist in behaviors more in line with their own values.  Used together these strategies increase client’s psychological flexibility.
