Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy began shaking up the field of CBT almost 30 years ago when its burgeoning body of research findings departed from the premise that behavior change required the correction of distorted thoughts. Rather than concerning itself with distorted thought content, ACT identified an entirely new therapeutic objective: change the way clients relate to their thoughts and other private experiences e. ACT incorporates acceptance strategies, mindfulness, and cognitive defusion techniques noticing thoughts, looking at them rather than from them, and learning how to let thoughts come and go rather than holding onto them , to help clients make more adaptive contact with thoughts, feelings, memories, and physical sensations that have been feared and avoided. Essentially, this comprises learning to let go of the struggle to control unwanted thoughts and feelings. The resulting increase in psychological flexibility allows clients to develop greater clarity about their personal values, and commit to the behavior change needed to begin moving in valued directions.

Environmental, social, behavioural and emotional psychological factors influence the lives of those with diabetes. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of a stress management group intervention based on acceptance and commitment therapy ACT among adults living with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes. The stress management group intervention will be based on ACT and comprises a programme divided into seven 2-hour sessions conducted over 14 weeks. A total of 70 patients who meet inclusion criteria will be recruited over a 2-year period with follow-up after 1, 2 and 5 years. The primary outcome measure will be HbA 1c.
