Psychological flexibility means contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being and changing behaviour in the service of chosen values.

The 5 basic strategies used in ACT

  1. Confronting the agenda (have previous efforts been successful in getting rid of the problem permanently?)
  2. Control is the problem (are you constantly struggling to maintain/gain control of your situation?)
  3. Willingness is the alternate (acceptance)
  4. The observing self (while our thoughts, feelings, sensations etc. constantly change the observing does not. It can be very powerful to draw attention to this aspect of self)
  5. Values and actions (what do you really want? What do you want your life to stand for? What sort of person do you want to be?)
