The Community

ACT, like many exciting academic realms, has a core group of researchers at the heart of its continued and vibrant existence. They have created the theory, its cross- and multi-cultural databases, and its computer software programs. Some of these researchers are new to the field, some have been involved in ACT for years, some for decades, and most have committed a great deal of professional labor to this intellectual enterprise.
