ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based behavioral treatment that emphasizes acceptance of emotion and thought while focusing on positive behavior change that is meaningful and consistent with personal values. ACT uses verbal, experiential, and homework techniques, mindfulness, and other awareness practices to help clients connect with internal events (thoughts, feelings, sensations), reducing rigid attempts to control negative emotions and thoughts. New learning by the client is consistent with openness to experience and commitment to actions linked to personal meaning. The ultimate goal of ACT is to support clients by increasing psychological and behavioral flexibility. This workshop is designed to assist providers in understanding and implementing the model, connecting the clinician with the principles and processes in ACT to assist clients in making powerful life-enhancing choices.
