Program Abstract: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based contextual behavioral treatment approach that is transdiagnostic and can be used across myriad mental health issues. Treatment targets include experiential avoidance and cognitive fusion, found to be central to mood and anxiety disorders. ACT employs acceptance/mindfulness and valued action/commitment processes to increase clients' ability to increase psychological flexibility. ACT developed from a robust empirical base exploring basic verbal processes (i.e., Relational Frame Theory) and has resulted in close to 250 clinical trials, suggesting its efficacy across numerous psychological disorders, including anxiety, chronic pain, OCD, depression, psychosis, smoking cessation, stress, burnout, and parenting. This clinical workshop will explore the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with depression, anxiety, and related disorders. Participants can expect some didactics, video clips, and many opportunities to practice or experience particular ACT techniques, as well as opportunities for case consultation. Participants will be broken into small groups and pairs for experiential and role-play exercises.


Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

1. Describe an overview of ACT for use across psychological disorders.
2. Provide a rationale for why a contextual behavioral approach may be useful across various psychological issues.
3. Provide a brief overview of contextual behavioral case conceptualization, assessment, and treatment.
4. Define, illustrate, and practice using all six ACT components.
5. Conceptualize cases from an ACT perspective, including functional assessment, structuring of treatment goals, and monitoring progress.
6. Illustrate how to harness values-based work more specifically and deeply.
7. Demonstrate the skills they learn through role plays, dyads, and small group work.
8. Illustrate how to harness ACT to deepen therapist-client relationships.
9. Describe how to approach anxiety and depression from an ACT perspective.
10. Present cases and obtain consultation on using ACT with challenging clients.
