Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an empirically-based intervention that combines mindfulness and acceptance with commitment and behavior-change strategies to improve functioning and is in contrast to a symptom-elimination approach.

3.5 CE

Instructor:  Michelle Maegley, PsyD
Objectives:

1. Describe ACT and how it relates to current interventions commonly used

2. Identify patient problems that might respond well to ACT and how ACT can benefit patients with serious and persistent mental illness

3. Identify how “normal” psychological processes contribute to suffering and how ACT principles can help develop psychological flexibility.
