Docente | 2019-06-30
Relational frame theory (RFT) is a comprehensive account of verbal behavior (Hayes, Barnes‐Holmes, & Roche, 2001). Because psychotherapy almost always relies on verbal behavior, all kinds of psychological interventions could potentially be analyzed from this perspective. In this chapter, we do not attempt such an extensive analysis, but focus instead on what we think are two core and integrated areas that can be used to help people change in psychological treatment. The strategies we suggest are based on RFT and relate specifically to the complex human abilities of: (a) following instructions or rules, and (b) interacting with our own behavior. According to RFT, these two core areas not only suggest potentially useful perspectives on how we might do effective therapy, but they also provide an understanding of what, to some extent, brings individuals into psychological therapy in the first place.
