Acceptance and Commitment therapy


Hello!

Anyone tried Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), they claims is the better & more effective therapy than CBT.
I found one book:
Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life by Steven C. Hayes.

I dont think any kind of talk therapy will help a person with body dysmorphic disorder,the cause of a lot of s.a. There are just some places you can't go and some things you can't do in order to avoid humilitation and embarressment.No amount of positive thinking will stop the pain of someone making fun of you.

ACT is not about positive thinking, it's about not attaching your emotions to your thoughts, I have the book "Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life by Steven C. Hayes." , I have not really read it through yet because it seems like it are all variations on meditation.
Oh yeah, they have also a section where you learn to take your thoughts and ridicule them.
