Acceptance Committment Therapy

What is it?

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic approach that will challenge you to commit to change by accepting thoughts and feelings about yourself, health, and fitness. The goal of ACT is to help you consistently choose to act effectively in the presence of difficult or disruptive events.

What does it do?

• With health behavior change, people usually feel a surge of motivation and energy about making the effort to exercise, exercising, and liking their trainers. Over time and as fitness becomes more challenging, however, this motivation may fall off and people come to resent themselves and the effort they must put in to achieve their goals.

 

Our Behavioral Medicine Clinicians have been trained in this process, and teach mechanisms that anticipate struggles and prevent occasional lapses from becoming relapses into inactivity and poor nutrition. They work with your entire team to make sure your process of change is as smooth as it can be, and that you maintain the energy and enthusiasm for exercising and feeling healthy that you had when you began.
