What is fusion and defusion ACT and how knowing that can help with our mental health and wellbeing

In this video, we explore the concept of fusion vs defusion and how this can help us improve our mental health and wellbeing.  Imagine watching a movie and although it is not real, we are still able to "fuse" or "buy into" that story, and have real emotions.  Fusion enables us to have emotions, and emotions can motivate us to take action.  However, this can be a double edge sword as in our minds, there are often many stories as well.  These stories can be very negative for some of us.  In some ways, these stories are not the real problem.  It's the fusion with these stories that can create the problem.  Hence, we have to learn how to defuse.
