ACT for Emotional Regulation

ACT is based on the premise that normal cognitive processes distort and enhance the experience of unpleasant emotion, leading clients to engage in problematic behaviors designed to avoid or attenuate those unpleasant emotions. Avoidant behavior patterns can hinder and prevent client movement toward valued goals and place the client in harmful situations. ACT focuses on facilitating the client’s movement toward a more valued and personally fulfilling life, in a context in which previously obstructive unpleasant emotions no longer serve as obstructions.


  1. Conceptualize emotion regulation problems from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy perspective (ACT)
  2. Identify specific ACT competences for the treatment of emotion regulation problems.
