The Process of Defusion The concepts described above are used as background for the work of defusion in ACT. Because language and cognitive fusion are, by definition, human phenomena, defusion is a skill that is universally relevant in ACT. All individuals are expected to be able to benefit from the ability to gain some distance from their cognitive content, rather than responding automatically to thoughts as if they are literal truths. For example, the individual with a long history of interpersonal disappointments may never stop having the thought, ‘No one can love me’, arise from time to time.

Defusion is a component of ACT where the irreverent responses discussed in Chapter 2 can be used to their full advantage. Done well, this part of ACT can be liberating, light and sometimes fun, even when dealing with very painful or challenging content. This work can model the notion that the therapist is not afraid of the client’s content, even when it feels terrifying or horrifying to the client. Thus, this is another example of where the therapeutic relationship can itself be used to model consistency with the principles of ACT that are being taught in the session.
