Addressing context to facilitate change

A traditional social work intervention might include changing context by helping a client get access to needed resources or by effecting larger scale systems change (e.g., policies, political action)

ACT changes the context of thoughts and feelings rather than trying to change the thoughts and feelings themselves

  • e.g., undermining the context of literality supported by the verbal community (defusion context)
  • e.g., treating private experiences as welcome guests (acceptance context)
