Resumen

La Terapia de Aceptación y Compromiso (ACT) es una intervención basada en procesos que promueve la flexibilidad psicológica implementando seis procesos centrales. Estos incluyen aceptación y conciencia como también procesos de valores y cambio conductuales. Sin embargo, el vehículo primario para implementar estas intervenciones es la relación terapéutica. En este trabajo discutimos que la Alianza Terapéutica (TA) es co-creada y es un factor crítico que contribuye a la efectividad de la implementación de ACT.  Este artículo se enfoca en la TA como una parte vital del tratamiento ACT. Desarrollamos la alianza terapéutica desde la perspectiva de ACT, exploramos los diferentes roles que ocupa en la implementación de ACT y concluimos con un ejemplo clínico. Mas específicamente mostramos cómo la alianza terapéutica y la relación terapéutica pueden ser un vehículo de cambio en ACT.
