Has anyone had ACT ...Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for trauma or anxiety? How well has it worked for you? I'm currently getting EMDR

Yeah that's what I thought too. How can we process memories while we're dissociated?
Your memories are always there. You might be thinking of EMDR. ACT doesn't have much to do with memories. Maybe you should look it up. Google it and find out what it is. I'll try to find a link to place here. Here's one

I did quite a bit of ACT in residential treatment and intensive outpatient. I think it's incredibly helpful for anxiety and DP/DR. You really cannot talk your way out of DP/DR, you need to get out and live life, and ACT is all about getting out of your head and the endless swirl of thoughts. I highly recommend it. There are also some good workbooks on Amazon, although I found it was really useful to have a therapist keeping me accountable. Not sure I could have just done ACT on my own. Good luck!
