Subject/Topic:

This workshop will provide an introduction to Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), an empirically based behavioral treatment modality that employs present moment awareness, acceptance, and other processes to support behavior change. The philosophy of change in ACT is consistent with other “third wave CBT” modalities, in that the primary goal is not symptom reduction but instead the promotion of greater psychological flexibility in the face of uncomfortable thoughts, memories, sensations, and emotions so that individuals exercise greater freedom engaging in values-driven behavior.

Workshop Description

This full day experiential workshop weaves a case example throughout various concepts presented over the day. The Six Primary Process in ACT are presented and each process is reviewed with an exercise, application to the case example, and empirical research. Role plays and opportunities for participants to practice with cases of their own are also included.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the primary process of the third wave cognitive behavioral therapy, including functional analysis and psychological flexibility.
  • Conceptualize human suffering from an ACT framework.
  • Identify fusion and experiential avoidance clients.
  • Define the Six Primary Processes in ACT.
  • Practice the Six Primary Processes in ACT.
