Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a third generation behavioral therapy that integrates insights from behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based therapies. The premise of ACT is that much suffering is caused by fruitless attempts to avoid painful experiences and emotions. In ACT, the emphasis is not on controlling painful experiences and pain, but on doing what matters in your life despite pain, limitations and painful feelings. Therefore, ACT is a form of treatment that fits well with rehabilitation.
The training was initially developed for teams in pain rehabilitation. However, lectures and workshops have shown that this approach is of interest to the entire rehabilitation sector.
In the period 2010-2012, ACT was implemented in the chronic pain treatments of nine rehabilitation centers. This involved combining the course with supervision sessions and in-company workshops. There is now a team of trained and experienced teachers and supervisors who can guide institutions in the implementation of ACT in interdisciplinary treatment teams.
