The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Diary 2021
If you sometimes feel that you’re living a life that’s out of step with who you want to be, The ACT Diary 2021 can help. It’s designed to enable you to clarify your personal values (the qualities you’d most like to embody in your life) and move in meaningful directions. Through weekly exercises drawing on the latest psychological approaches, it will guide you as you master the skills needed to look after yourself, build strong relationships and pursue new opportunities.
Based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), it puts values centre-stage where they can best guide actions and decisions. It is especially helpful for those engaged in ACT; however, the principles are relevant to anyone seeking to build psychological flexibility – the ability to connect fully with experiences, including difficult thoughts and feelings, and pursue an authentic life.
It’s your wellbeing companion for the year ahead.
