"If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for."

–Thomas Merton

Links to ACT Websites

Any of these will bring you to the official ACBS (parent organization of ACT) website. The public portal is the website listed just below.

This document establishes ACT as a mainstream therapy, supported by empirical research.

thehappinesstrap.com: This is a very helpful resource that goes along with the book of the same name by Russ Harris (The Happiness Trap) and is, in my opinion, the most user friendly book on ACT therapy.

Steven Hayes, the originator of ACT, has posted some great articles in blog format:

Mindfulness and Meditation Resources
