Focus on Change draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an evidence based form of treatment with solid research to demonstrate its effectiveness. One skill that will be developed is called the “Choice Point,” a simple but powerful tool that can help you to see whether you are moving toward or away from your goals and when you are becoming “hooked” by your thoughts and emotions. Another skill involves learning to “pivot” towards what matters – a part of your increased emotional flexibility that will allow you to better deal with challenging thoughts and feelings as they arise.
