Posts Tagged ‘Acceptance and Commitment Therapy’

Is this woman just Debbie Downer, or yet another example that the Positive Psychology movement is increasingly under fire and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is taking over? Although not a clinician herself, she challenges many well-accepted therapeutic techniques widely used in offices today and is spurring more debate against Martin Seligman’s Positive Psychology Movement. And again, I am seeing more and more evidence coming out in support of ACT. She does not name her opinions as such, but if you are familiar with it, you will hear many similarities. This 3rd generation CBT is a therapy to watch, folks.

Barbara Ehrenreich has PhD in Cell Biology but is described on Wikipedia as “an American feminist, democratic socialist, pop sociologist and political activist”. She is also the author if nearly 20 books and many columns and essays in prestigious publications.

Regardless of your stance on this, she raises some interesting questions.
