Evaluating acceptance and commitment therapy: An analysis of a recent critique

Brandon A. Gaudiano
2010 International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy  
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a newer psychotherapy that has generated much clinical and research interest in recent years.  ...  In the current article, I further analyze Hofmann and Asmundson's critique of ACT to determine its evidential merit and to attempt to clarify potential points of misunderstanding between CBT and ACT proponents  ...  In this view, the task when dealing with an unworkable thought is to change the form of the thought, just as a computer may be changed by replacing memory chips or by changing software.  ...
