Act Matrix

ACT is based in Functional Contextualism, a philosophy of science that utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis as its bedrock for predicting and influencing human behavior. ACT’s model of Psychological Flexibility is rooted in principles and practices that have become part of our modern clinical lexicon: meditation, mindfulness, acceptance, values, and behavioral activation.
A solid foundation of research has been established over the past 30 years supporting the use of ACT for treating conditions ranging from stress, anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorders to chronic pain, substance abuse, and diabetes. Researchers, clinicians, and even economists are finding additional applications for ACT in schools and homes, as well as in business settings and non-profit organizations.
