The ACT Matrix is a visual representation of the cognitive behavioral approach to values-based behaviors known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). It was designed by Dr. Kevin Polk to quickly engage people in a process that builds psychological flexibility, which is a cornerstone of good mental health. This evidence-based, mindful approach “loosens up” stuck and struggling learners by empowering them to move toward resilience and persistence in the face of obstacles and challenges.

The ACT Matrix walks students through a process of identifying values, regulating emotionally challenging experiences, and achieving greater satisfaction and success academically and socially. It can be used at all grade levels (K-12) for:

  • developing social-emotional skills such as self-awareness, self-monitoring, self-regulation, social awareness, and goal-directed behavior
  • establishing a positive classroom and school climate and culture of caring, respect, and personal responsibility
  • increasing engagement and on-task behavior
  • positive behavior support and intervention
  • strengthening classroom management
  • improving problem-solving skills and student achievement
  • promoting effective collaboration
  • establishing a shared point of view and language that fosters cooperation among students, staff, and administration
