Abstract

ACT consistent interventions can be used by medical and behavioral health providers to help patients who are struggling to manage a chronic health condition or improve their general health status. The Acceptance and Commitment—Health Care Model (ACT-HC; Robinson & Hayes, 1997) is an approach to combining medical and psychological interventions within an ACT consistent framework. The goal of the ACT—HC model is to help medical patients successfully implement behaviors that are consistent with their values in the presence of difficult private experiences triggered by medical discomfort, chronic medical conditions or elevated health risk.
