ACT in Rehabilitation and Lifestyle Medicine

ACT is a psychotherapy build on previously identified mechanisms underlying our capacity to cope with difficulties. These are our insight or level of awareness, our level of commitment to what is important in life and the stamina to persist despite difficulties.  These skills together help us and our patients to make the behavioral changes needed to improve our health and thus, live a vital life despite certain limitations or difficulties.

Chronic conditions are related to our capacity to take care of ourselves, to our level ofphysical activity,  diet, how we relate to ourselves and others. These everyday behaviors (physical, mental and social) can effectively be improved by short and group-based interventions delivered by physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, and the rehabilitation team.

ACTiveRehab  and the ACT principles help us to grow and live the life we dream of, wether you are a health care professional or not.
