ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT) INTRO TRAINING
Deepen your therapy work
Reinvigorate Our Lives
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based, pragmatic form of psychotherapy that integrates mindfulness and behavioral change to increase clients' psychological flexibility.
Psychological flexibility can be in described as the ability to engage in values-based, positive behaviors while accepting the experience of difficult thoughts, emotions, or sensations.
When you think about it, ACT is also just a practical set of guidelines for improving all people's lives and making the, more satisfying. In this way, it can be used as a workshop for anyone, not just the people we call clients. And, for that matter, doing ACT can also really improve the lives of us therapists. I have seen many therapists transform their own lives doing this work.
This course focuses on experientially learning the components and foundational skills of ACT with a focus on helping adults and adolescents from diverse populations and a variety of life problems organize their lives around what matters to them, rather than avoidance of unwanted emotions, thoughts, and body sensations.
Students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to utilize this method appropriately and effectively with diverse client populations and problems.
Please note that ACT is a very broad and deep model of therapy. Students will learn much of the foundational aspects of ACT through the required learning. Class time is intended to focus largely on the approach and delivery of ACT material, which is critical to the effective use of ACT with clients.
Our next training is fully virtual:
