The depressed client obviously once had values and still does, perhaps even the same ones that have been “forgotten,” but psychologically contacting the distance between such values and the client’s current life situation is too emotionally painful. From the perspective of ACT, where you find values, you will find suffering; and where you find suffering, you will find values (Wilson, 2005).
ACT for depression does not share the agenda of enhancing self-worth or improving the self-concept. This is not primarily because attaining such goals might prove to be especially difficult and are, therefore, not recommended, but, more importantly, because such a strategy, even if it were successful, is regarded as being unnecessary. Rather than rehabilitating the conceptualized self with which depressed clients are fused, emphasis is instead placed on fostering experiential contact with a transcendent sense of self as context from which self-referential thoughts and feelings can be viewed as being independent of the self.
At least half of those clients who are successfully treated for an initial episode of depression will relapse (Paykel, Ramana, Cooper, Hayhurst, Kerr, & Barocka, 1995), with each subsequent episode increasing the likelihood of depression’s recurrence (Consensus Development Panel, 1985). The second factor critical to MBCT’s development was the conclusion that the central change process within cognitive therapy is apparently not one of restructuring depressing thoughts but of enabling clients to distance themselves from them.
