This one-day training will introduce participants to the theoretical underpinnings, clinical model, and core interventions used in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Participants will be introduced to clinically relevant processes in ACT and will learn how these processes give rise to many forms of human suffering. In addition, the six core processes targeted in ACT will be introduced, with discussion of clinical applications to both adult and child/adolescent populations. In addition to didactic instruction, this workshop will rely heavily on the use of clinical demonstration and experiential exercises to illustrate basic ACT principles and interventions.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Describe basic tenets of the clinical model underlying an ACT approach.
- Identify some of the differences between ACT and more traditional cognitive behavioral treatments.
- Identify six clinically relevant processes targeted in ACT.
- Describe core clinical methods used to promote psychological flexibility and other ACT-relevant outcomes.
- Identify strategies for adapting ACT clinical methods for both adult and child populations
