MONTEIRO, Érika Pizziolo; FERREIRA, Gabriela Correia Lubambo; SILVEIRA, Pollyanna Santos da  e  RONZANI, Telmo Mota. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and stigma: a narrative review. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.1, pp.25-31. ISSN 1808-5687.

The acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is included in the group of the cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT's) and has as its main concept the psychological flexibility, described as the ability to contact the present moment and internal experiences and, according to the context, persist or change the quest for personal goals and values. This paper aims to describe the philosophical and theoretical assumptions of this psychotherapeutic approach, also presenting it according to its main constructs. The process of stigmatization results in several losses, not only health-wise, but also at the psychological and social levels. It is expected with this study to base future empirical proposals to reduce internalized stigma based on the principles of the ACT, since attempting to directly eliminate particular stereotypes may be less fruitful than the alternative of modifying the functional connection between thoughts, feelings, and manifest behaviors, therefore being feasible to consider the ACT as an approach for coping.
