"ACT and the 12 Steps: Clinical Application of ACT co-author Dr. Kelly Wilson's Exposition of Functional Relationships between ACT and the 12 Steps"

Description:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a revolutionary behavioral therapy based on advances in clinical behavioral analysis. ACT is a holistic treatment which can treat multiple comorbidities simultaneously with one approach.

12-step recovery groups are perhaps the most utilized community supports for those in recovery from substance misuse. Dr. Kelly Wilson, co-author of the original ACT therapy, has written a book detailing his clinical and personal experience with combining ACT and 12-step recovery. This presentation focuses on defining and demonstrating the use of ACT and 12-Step recovery as complementary methods.

2) Identify the positive affirmation trap

3) List two of the three perspective exercises

6) Give examples of prison sentence conversations

7) Define values in terms of being the author of your life

8) List 4 value domains from the valued living questionnaire
