In this workshop, Steven C. Hayes, the originator of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, will
show how the move to process-based approaches liberates practitioners to use ACT and its
underlying Psychological Flexibility Model to ask and answer this key clinical question: “What
core biopsychosocial processes should be targeted with this client given this goal in this
situation, and how can they most efficiently and effectively be changed?”
The program is designed both for ACT beginners (provided they have at least read a beginning
ACT book) and ACT intermediates and even experts.
Participants will learn:
To list the advantages of a process-based approach to interventions
To describe the main ACT processes and how they relate to varied forms of psychopathology and behavioral health problems and outcomes
How to conduct a process-based case conceptualization and to link individual client characteristics to ACT flexibility processes
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on the process of experiential avoidance and to use its underlying motivation in the promotion of acceptance
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on the process of cognitive fusion and to use its underlying motivation in the promotion of defusion
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on the process of losing contact with the present moment and to use its underlying motivation to promote in-session mindfulness
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on the process of conceptual self and to use its underlying motivation to promote a broader sense of self as an observer
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on the process of values confusion and to use its underlying motivation to promote in-session contact with values
To demonstrate methods to identify and intervene on action deficits and to use its underlying motivation to promote in and out-of-session committed action
To demonstrate methods for moving swiftly move from one process to another according to client need and in-session opportunities
