Abstract

Based on the fundamental principals of Contextual Behavioural Science, Acceptance and Commitment Therapies are delivering reliable outcomes for various mental health disorders, including anxiety and depression. ACT is particularly effective when paired with Behaviour Analysis.  ACT acknowledges an individual’s contextual and relational framing, and relies upon interventions that address cognitive and emotive behaviours, as well as the contingencies that maintain behaviour. Persons living with ASD do not readily fit into the typical frames for ACT. Case examples of adaptations for persons with the functional capacities typical of ASD will be presented, using inteventions that combine ACT tools and ABA technologies.
