Experiential avoidance, cognitive fusion, and an ACT approach to anorexia nervosa
Case conceptualization and treatment Planning for individuals with eating disorders seem to follow logically from within the framework of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which focuses on maladaptive control strategies directed toward emotional avoidance, cognitive fusion, and failure to act in accord with chosen values.
