Title: A principles-based approach to ACT with self-forgiveness: new approaches to flexible living
Author: Dewar, Grant Malcolm
Issue Date: 2017
School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: This dissertation explores the potential additive benefits of self-forgiveness within Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). It examines the importance of self-forgiveness and new wave treatment approaches for addressing psychological distress, which most commonly manifests as anxiety and depression. This research sought to establish explicit and practical links between current evidence-based approaches within Relational Frame Theory (RFT) and ACT, together with research into self-forgiveness, and tested the potential value of a set of principles that could be used with both individuals and groups affected by shame and guilt associated with personal transgressions
