If you’re keen to know even more about the research underpinning this program, below are two links to the Association of Contextual Behavioral Science website.

There are now almost 200 RCTs (randomized controlled trials) on ACT. RCTs are the gold standard of psychological research. Most of the RCTs on ACT  are listed here: https://contextualscience.org/ACT_Randomized_Controlled_Trials

This link explores the complete scientific evidence base for ACT: https://contextualscience.org/state_of_the_act_evidence

We estimate that at least 100, 000 therapists around the world have trained in the ACT model. (Is your coach or therapist trained in ACT? If not, they’re missing out on one of fastest growing therapies in the world.)
