Acceptance: A Core Process in the ACT Hexagon Model


MidAmerican Psychological Institute
Pickslyde Consulting

Key Points

  1. Acceptance means actively contacting psychological experiences directly, fully, without needless defense while behaving effectively.
  2. The focus of acceptance is on private experiences. If there are public obstacles that you can work with, the ACT approach would encourage committing to changing what you can.
  3. Experiential avoidance exacerbates a client’s clinically relevant issues. Acceptance can be used to learn how to have a new relationship with emotions and sensations and commit to having a purposeful life.
