About the Founder of ACT:
Steven C. Hayes is the founder of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps people to accept their thoughts and emotions rather than fighting them. Hayes developed ACT in the 1980s after struggling with his own anxiety and depression. He found that traditional cognitive therapy was not effective for him, as it focused on trying to change his thoughts and emotions. Instead, Hayes found that it was more helpful to accept his thoughts and emotions and to focus on taking action in the direction of his values.
