Event description
In-Session Case Conceptualization in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to Help You be Focused and Strategic in Your Interventions

About this Event

Online Webinar:

This workshop provides a chance to learn and practice in-session, in-the-moment case conceptualization of cases from the perspective of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This workshop focuses on helping you use ACT theory & in-session clinical markers to make more precise and strategic interventions. The main goal of this workshop is to help you become more adept at identifying in-session client behaviors that are indicators for particular ACT processes that are likely to be most relevant. The workshop uses a process we call ACT Circuit Training, which involves intensive analysis of a video of an ACT session and intentional practice in conceptualizing client behavior and generating possible ACT responses, followed by discussion and feedback. This is a fast-paced workshop where much of the workshop is spent in active practice.

Participants will get the most from the workshop if they have read at least one basic ACT text, such as:

Another reference for getting started in ACT is the Learning ACT Resource Guide.

AUDIENCE: The audience is aimed at clinicians who have at least some practice with ACT, but is also appropriate for intermediate to advanced practitioners who have not already seen this material.

This workshop assumes that attendees have at least some knowledge of and practice with ACT. Those who have no knowledge of ACT will likely find themselves lost as the basics of ACT theory and intervention will not be taught. If you have not attended prior trainings on ACT, we recommend you do at least some basic reading on ACT before you attend this workshop.


Registration is online.

Scholarships: We reserve a number of partial scholarships for potential attendees who could not otherwise afford to come. We give particular priority given to those who would add diverse and under represented voices to our field. To submit an application, please click here.

After attending this training, you will be able to:

  1. Better conceptualize client behavior in session.
  2. Identify client behaviors that would suggest particular ACT methods .
